So if I have a $(srcdir)/data directory, then
$(srcdir)/data/Makefile.am will have *only* one
line like this?
EXTRA_DIST = foo1.data foo2.data foo3.data
I saw in New Riders Autotools book that they
mentioned a "primary" called DATA. This seems
to imply I can also do $(srcdir)/data/Makefile.am
bin_DATA = foo1.data foo2.data foo3.data
This book says those files will be *installed*.
Perhaps that is the main difference between bin_DATA
and EXTRA_DIST???? Will EXTRA_DIST cause all that
junk to end up somewhere like /usr/local/bin/myprogram/data?

You want EXTRA_DIST.
EXTRA_DIST = foo.data bar.data
