While this approach works fine, it's much more complicated than
the approach we already use, where knows the name
of the (in our case) gda subdirectory.  That way we can just use
an AC_SUBST() instead of an AM_CONDITIONAL.

Both approaches work, but I think our approach is fewer lines in and also fewer lines in
