Hi Ralf,

I guess I wasn't clear enough.  In section 4.7.2 of the autoconf manual,
it says:
That's why I'm having the makefile (which autoconf generates) do the
substitution rather than calling AC_OUTPUT_FILES([runme]) or
AC_CONFIG_FILES([runme]).  (I tried the latter strategies without
success---the substitutions would end up with '${prefix}' or
'${exec_prefix}' in them, which would probably be undefined when runme is
actually executed.  And since I am using a makefile to generate the
derived script 'runme', 'make distclean' doesn't remove it unless I add it
to DISTCLEANFILES---otherwise 'make distcheck' fails.

OK.  Then leave in the DISTCLEANFILES, and mention only in
EXTRA_DIST, or only in noinst_DATA if you like (dunno if the latter


Thanks!  I used the first method you mentioned and it works.
