BTW, that was a mix of "on us all" and "on all of us", if
anyone didn't notice...

Well, I had @am_reldir@ in my original patch, so obviously I'm
not totally against the am_ prefix, but I did think it was too
long. You didn't really say in what way using @ was bad? This
might be the time to revisit that, so that we can come full
circle on this issue? :-) But seriously, why would it be bad
to use @ for something that is not going to be seen by
config.status anyway? Because grepping the source becomes
'difficult'? Trouble documenting? Users expecting to be able
to AC_SUBST? What?

You also suggested %percent% way back when but didn't like it.
How bad was that? What about Ā§reldirĀ§ (not ascii, so I guess
not) or [reldir]? Are square brackets legit in a Makefile for
anything?

If we do go with the prefix, do we really want to advertice
so obviously? I mean, {AM_D}, come on... :-)

I don't really care, just pick something that works. And stick
to it.

Cheers,
Peter
