OK.  Maybe it is the way I use it.  In any case has:

  AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([1.6 gnits dist-bzip2])

and I invoked "autoreconf" as you saw in the comment (*with* --install)
> ## autoreconf --force --install --include=m4 -Wall
and the files COPYING, INSTALL, config.guess and config.sub were not copied into
the directory until I directly invoked "automake" with the noted options:
> automake --gnu --add-missing --copy --ignore-deps -Wall

And, as I said, adding these options to the AUTOMAKE environment variable did 
not work..
I haven't tried the AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS environment variable because it is an 
option passing environment name, so I did not know to look for it.  Perhaps it 
is just
my environment, but I did just do a fresh SuSE 9.2 install......

Thanks - Bruce
