GNU Midnight Commander is OK, just tested it.

One little nitpick.  Either the message about underquoted macros in
aclocal should cause aclocal to fail, or there should be a word "WARNING"
in the message.  I actually mistook this message for the reason why failed (the reason was unrelated to Automake).  I mean this
code in

       print STDERR "$file:$.: underquoted definition of $2\n";
       print STDERR "$file:$.: run info '(automake)Extending aclocal'\n"
         . "or see";
         . "automake.html#Extending%20aclocal\n"

By the way, wouldn't the "warn" function in Perl more appropriate?  It's
used elsewhere in  It doesn't add "WARNING" though.

I also hope 1.8 will be released soon.  I cannot wait for m4_include
support.  Many thanks to the Automake team.
