Note that there are 3 automake-related lists: automake
for general discussion, bug-automake for bug reports and
automake-patches for patches.

It probably does do its job; it's just that configure
(well, config.status anyway) is supposed to create dummy
files first (so the 'include' in the Makefile works the
first time, before depcomp has run).

This is the step that is supposed to do the depfile creation.
Does the bootstrap script properly run aclocal (without a -I
option pointing to a directory holding outdated automake
macro files)?
