Put `AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR([.])' in finch/libgnt/  Put either
`AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR([.])' or `AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR([finch/libgnt])' in the
toplevel (depending on whether you would prefer to have two
copies or only one of the auxiliary scripts in the combined tree.

I'm sort of confused on my options, is this correct?

1. AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR([.]) in finch/libgnt/ &&
   AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR([.]) in


2. AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR([.]) in finch/libgnt/ &&
   AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR([finch/libgnt]) in

I should note that the latter setup may cause you to stumble over a
bug with Automake releases older than 1.10, so be sure to use at least

After reading what that macro does, I think the former setup is
optimal for our situation.  Thank you for you help, we appreciate it!
