Now it is clear to me.  I did not understand the extra magic.
Thank you.  I was relying on this:

OK.  I'm going to straight out solicit some help.  Energetic people
with an hour or so to burn, please CVS-get this tiny project:

  cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot/autogen \
    get blocksort

(no password) look at this page:

and suggest ways to make it rock solid and as simple as possible.
Obviously, I won't be using autoconf substitutions in SUBDIRS
anymore.  Hopefully, that will also fix the duplicate file issue, too.
Oh, the files of interest in "blocksort":

Especially note some hackery that I hate in cfg/bootstrap.
Immediately after libtoolizing, I move the config.guess,
config.sub and files into the cfg directory.
If I don't, it fails.  If I do, I get sick.  Shouldn't
libtoolize have a config aux-directory option?  What am
I missing this time?
