I'm not against doing this.  Since GTAGS is a GNU program, and one of
automake's goals is to work well with other GNU programs, it seems
like a reasonable idea.

I'm curious: what advantage does global give over etags or idutils?

Note that this will be run in the build tree.

You indicate elsewhere that it should be run in the source tree.  But
that is wrong for automake (there are some special exceptions, but
this isn't one).

Does gtags have an option so that it can be run in one directory but
put its output files in another?
