But the more I think about it, the more I dislike the idea of creating
an empty directory whose existence is required by aclocal in order for
it to function at all.  Moreover, the objection you've raised might be
applied to the aclocal and automake (unversioned) scripts themselves,
but that doesn't prevent us from installing them.

So I've committed the patch after all (see attachment).
