Hi Peter,

  Yes make distcheck is in fact failing (even with your modification).
The error is:

/bin/install -c -m 644
/bin/install: cannot stat ‘’: No such file or directory

The is being included with the dist archive because of the
EXTRA_DIST, however it is not being located for the installation.

Do I need to also prefix the "" in that install-data-local rule
with some directory variable?
