DOH.  I'll break up the patch into its functional units.

I'll do the file and directory removals (config/* and gnats/man)
directly -- there really isn't a reason to post those patches since the
content removal hasn't broken anything in my testing.  I'll do this this

Let's spend some time unifying the files into one at the
root gnats directory.  That way we won't run into this problem again.
I'll withhold the AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR change until this is complete.
Maybe it's time to commit to automake as well.

I've been reading up on the libtool stuff, which doesn't seem to have
the AUX directory configurations, it dumps everything into the root
directory.  I'll do some more digging into this.
autoconf+automake+libtool may be powerful, but it certainly has its
learning curve.

Shouldn't that be $(INSTALL), not ${INSTALL}?  Anyway, I'll take a look
at that, too.
