Follow-up Comment #3, bug #16173 (project pspp):

A few comments:

The autoconf manual says:

>     None of `mkdir''s options are portable.  Instead of `mkdir -p
>     FILENAME', you should use use `AS_MKDIR_P(FILENAME)' (*note
>     Programming in M4sh::).

although it's not the right syntax to use in a Makefile.  There's another use
of mkdir -p later in the patch.

+# Kludge to get around automake deficiency.

Should we be using AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR(build-aux) and put texinfo.tex, among
other files, in build-aux/?  (Would that solve the problem?)

Otherwise looks good to me, as long as it works (and it sounds like it

When this is committed, the README should be updated to drop the requirement
for GNU make.
