Hmm, the commit message was quite suboptimal.  Consider it substituted by
the following one.

    install: pkglibexec_SCRIPTS is a valid prefix/primary combination

    It makes little sense for `libexec_SCRIPTS' to be accepted as valid
    while `pkglibexec_SCRIPTS' is not.  So fix this inconsistency by
    explicitly allowing `pkglibexec_SCRIPTS' as well.  It is worth
    noting that the inconsistency has been there for a long time,
    but only the quite recent commit `v1.11-373-g9ca6326' "Warnings
    about primary/prefix mismatch fixed and extended" has made it
    noisy enough to be noticed.

    * (handle_scripts): Also list `pkglibexec' among the
    prefixes valid for the `SCRIPTS' primary.
    * doc/automake.texi (Scripts): Likewise.
    * tests/primary-prefix-valid-couples.test: Update.
    * THANKS: Likewise.
    * NEWS: Likewise.

Sorry for the noise,
