I made those changes, but then ran into a problem. If you set
--with-backup-prefix to soemthing in a pound sign e.g; .# or #
...things blow up Makefile.am does not seem to have any facility
for escaping interpolated values, and apparently pounds signs
aren't portable in Makefile variable values anyhow.


Consequently tests will fail for these particular settings like so:

make  check-TESTS
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/belg4mit/nmh'
/bin/sh: -c: line 9: unexpected EOF while looking for matching `''
/bin/sh: -c: line 91: syntax error: unexpected end of file
make[2]: *** [check-TESTS] Error 2

Although if one can manage to escape the value as in the Makefile
as shown below, the tests will pass:
