I decided to add the `.srv' and `.cli' files to `EXTRA_DIST' instead.

Correct.  This and similar other files should also be added to
`EXTRA_DIST' instead of some `*_SOURCES'.

Barry, thanks for the patch, it was of great help!

I integrated it into a local tree here at home, changed and added some
bits, began testing it to eventually commit it into the cvs repository,
but before I was able to finish the testing, I hit another Automake bug,
I believe, which I then reported to <bug-automake@gnu.org>.  So we now
have to wait until that is resolved.
