Automake-1.6.1: distcheck success message

Dear Automake maintainers,

the message issued at the end of a successful "make distcheck" refers
to the gzip archive only, though the dependency on `dist' produces all
configured archive formats.

Maybe you'd want to make only `dist-gzip' for `distcheck', or even
just make `distdir' and save the unpacking step, but then people would
have to do a `make dist' after `make distcheck', which has not been
the case before. (However, that change would not disturb me.)
I suppose that `make distcheck' shall continue to also make `dist',
but then I'd appreciate a slight extension of the success message

        "$(distdir).tar.gz is ready for distribution"

to, for example,

        "$(distdir).{tar.gz,tar.bz2,zip} are ready for distribution"

if the `dist-bzip' and `dist-zip' options have been given.

The coresponding source code fragment is located in `distdir.am', but I
have not found the time to learn its syntax yet.  No patch, sorry.

Best regards,

Christian Cornelssen
