Automake is applying the various program changes to _SCRIPTS...

I don't even know *HOW* we can support program-prefix, program-suffix
(and worst of all) program-transform-name ... I can't think of any way
of getting the resulting transform into libtoolize; at least not one
that doesn't make me violently sick.

The Autoconf manual does say "if the package supports it", maybe we
should just not support it and mercilessly flay anyone who tries?

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
