    I think this is a bug in automake (I've tried with 1.6 as well).  It
appears to be a dependency problem involving guile-tut.texi's inclusion
of version.texi and the use of TEXINFO_TEX=../ref/texinfo.tex.  The first
run of automake puts mdate-sh in doc/ref, then texinfo.tex into doc/ref.
In the second run of automake, mdate-sh gets installed in doc/tutorial.

Maybe.  I haven't actually tracked the bug down in automake.  However, it 
looks like the Makefile.am in doc/tutorial conforms to automake's 
documentation, which would make this (by definition) a bug in automake.

One other thing I noticed - doing a diff of the guile tree after 1 and 2 
of autogen.sh revealed another difference: mdate-sh and depcomp get added to 
DIST_COMMON only on the 2nd run.
