Yep.  Gary agreed to revert this and populate
/usr/share/aclocal/ as in the past.  But it's not a big deal to
work around: simply copy these files to /usr/share/aclocal by

Gary, I've also noticed that in packages that do not use
`ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS = -I m4dir' the libtoolize script will dump all
m4 macros in the current directory.  This sounds bogus because
no tool will read these macros there.  People that do not use 
`-I m4dir' simply want their aclocal.m4 filled.
