aclocal doesn't know which macros are really needed, it looks which macros
are potentially needed.

In other words, if invokes a macro A which is in file AB.m4,
and this file also contains the definition of a macro B which relies
on a macro C, found in C.m4, then 'aclocal' will fail if you provide
only AB.m4 but not C.m4.
