Thanks for the report. Your changes amount to quite a few lines of code,
would you be willing to sign a copyright disclaimer and mail it to the FSF
so that I can apply your patch as-is? If not, I will try to reverse
engineer what you are attempting based on your description above, and
apply a similar patch by comparing the branch-1_4 Makefile.in with ones
created by automake on CVS head, without referencing your patch, so that
we are not violating copyright assignment limitations.
