Drat.  I'm in *exactly* the same boat.  I can't get 'make dist' to work
with relative paths, and my colleagues will go ballistic if I 'pollute'
the source tree with *NIX config files.  I was hoping there was a magic
fix. :-{

I suspect I'm too lazy for that. ;-)  Seems like it would be more fun to
take a stab at hacking automake to work with my setup.  Or is the
"config files must be in the top-level dir" rule so ingrained into the
tool that this is extremely unlikely?
