Put `AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR([.])' in finch/libgnt/  Put either
`AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR([.])' or `AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR([finch/libgnt])' in the
toplevel (depending on whether you would prefer to have two
copies or only one of the auxiliary scripts in the combined tree.

I should note that the latter setup may cause you to stumble over a
bug with Automake releases older than 1.10, so be sure to use at least

Hope that helps.
