That's the problem with moving targets.  Knowledge is always out
of date.  As you know, I've been an automake customer for 4 or 5 years.
I confess I don't go back and recheck "is it working now" once
I have something working.  I've moved on.  If you have any recommendations
for autogen/doc/, I would cheerily be rid of some of that
uglitude.  But my fear of pain won't allow me to go in and
clean up something that hobbles okay.  :-)  It was too hard
to get it and keep it working.  Er, hobbling.
