Probably yes -- but IMHO it should then also be smart enough to create
the directory *only* when it makes sense, i.e. only when the `--install'
flag is used too.

Also, it might be useful if aclocal would not complain (or at least would
not error out) in case it is passed a non-existent or unreadable directory
through the `-I' option.  This "laxer" behaviour is implemented in many
other gnu tools already (e.g., make, m4. gcc).

I might take a look at this issues in the next(ish) days.
