        For automake PR/46:
        * lib/am/ (%MAKEFILE-IN%): If is rebuilt
        because of one of configure's dependency, run automake without
        argument to update the whole tree at once.  Depend upon
        (%MAKEFILE%): If Makefile is rebuilt because config.status has
        been updated, run config.status without arguments.
        * (scan_autoconf_traces): Prepent $(top_srcdir)
        before all files in @configure_deps.
        * tests/subdir5.test: Modernize, make sure
        maude/Makefile was actually created, and exercize %CONFIGURE_DEPS%.
        * tests/subdir8.test: New file.
        * tests/ (TESTS): Add subdir8.test.
        (XFAIL_TESTS): Replace subdir5.test by subdir8.test.

This is a great patch.  Please, do install it!  I would like to
emphasize that its main effect will probably be less that subdir5
passes (adding a directory is not that common) than speeding up the
builds (changing something in the top level, e.g., is
quite common).  NEWS should not keep the second Kiss Cool Effect quiet :)
