configure can't find doc/

I'm running Debian Lenny GNU/Linux 5.0 on a pentium 3, and I've installed the latest autotools.

I've just created a doc subdirectory for a .texi manual in my current project build. Configure appears to have no problem creating the Makefiles for all subdirectories. However, running "make distcheck" terminates with the error message:

"config.status: error: cannot find input file: 'doc/' "

Installation of the resulting tarball produces an installation with missing directories. I've done a fair bit of googling but have been unable to resolve the problem. Would you be kind enough to give me some pointers?

Here are the logs:

address@hidden:~/project$ ./configure

configure: creating ./config.status

config.status: creating doc/Makefile
config.status: creating logo/Makefile

address@hidden:~/project$ make distcheck 2> distcheckerrorlog
address@hidden:~/project$ more distcheckerrorlog

config.status: error: cannot find input file: `doc/'
make: *** [distcheck] Error 1

I believe the distcheck "Error 1" is due to files left behind in the build directory, which I'll have to write additional "clean" rules for in the Makefiles.
