No, it is not defined automatically. However, if a construct like the
one above is apprears in even if condition SOMETHING is
false I end up with empty install-data-local rule. If no
install-data-local rule is present at all it does not appear in
resultant Makefile. So, there has to be some extra logic associated with
conditionals handling, I'm wondering if I do not abuse it somehow.

Thank you for the answer.
