Hallo Ralf,

The first three tests fail within `make distcheck':

- `autoreconf --force', seeing the sub/ltdl subproject, enters the
  sub/ltdl directory, in there, aclocal tries to write
  sub/ltdl/aclocal.m4 (without removing it first).  If we remove the
  `--force', still autoconf fails, because it tries to write to


I'm not quite sure about the best way to handle this.  We could
replace autoreconf with calling aclocal, automake, and autoconf by
hand to prevent recursing.  Proposed patch below ok?

Sure.  Looks good to me.

        * tests/ (LT_AT_AUTOMAKE): New macro.
        * tests/ Use it.  Do not call `autoreconf' in
        tests, since it will try to reconfigure `sub/ltdl', which
        breaks `make check' during `distcheck' because of a readonly
        source tree.
