I also found out that if you add a file to AC_OUTPUT that is in a subdir
without a Makefile, that file isn't included in dist tarballs either.
I don't know, however, if I should really expect automake to pick that
detail up - it's probably something Automake don't want to support.

: These are intentional.  Not all primaries are distributed by default.
: You can use `dist_*_SCRIPT' and `dist_*_DATA' to change this.

OK, so I set it up like this?

m4datadir = $(datadir)/aclocal
dist_m4data_DATA = <package>.m4

I tried prefixing m4datadir with dist_ too, but then dist_m4data_DATA
wasn't understood.
