It would be nice if there was a way that such changes in
Automake don't impact "foreign" Makefiles.  Any idea?

Automake 1.7 introduces three new recursive targets: `ps',
`pdf', and `ctags'.  (Maybe you can make provision for the
future and define `html' as an empty phony target too.)

Files built with these new targets are not installed (by lack of
associated standard xxxxdir variable).

Regarding datarootdir/sharedir and localedir, there is nothing
to change in Automake since it uses `autoconf --trace'.  As soon
as a new release of Autoconf defines these variables, Automake
(>=1.7) will define them in Makefile.ins.
