No, that's not automake, instead it's the libtool package. I've recently 
upgraded to suse9.3 which has libtool-1.5.14 and I ran "libtoolize" from 
that package. Maybe I didn't notice that ./ does *not* run 
libtoolize. In any case, then my removal of was wrong and 
should be reverted. Sorry for that.

By the way, we also have the file "acinclude.m4" in CVS. In current 
automake/autoconf versions it is advised *against* that file, so at some 
point in the future we should consider removing that file altogether. At 
the moment it probably masks some local macros that should be used. 
Whatever. Okay, I won't touch these things again and will only silently 
whine about locally changed files...
