I don't understand.  You let some script generate a fragment file that
is include'd by a file and lists all files to be distributed
or installed.  The script gets run by a make rule when appropriate.
Problem solved, no?

The only downside I see is that you need to run automake during
development, which is something many projects do anyway.
