Sure.  The configure script adds a single site macro directory, but
you had suggested that there be different directories for autoconf,
autotest, etc.  So the idea of --site-macro-subdir is that each tool
will use a seperate subdirectory of the site macro directory.

For example, the autoconf language definition in autom4te.cfg includes
"--site-macro-subdir autoconf".  So, if the site macro directory is:


then autoconf will search:


Likewise, the autotest language definition in autom4te.cfg includes
"--site-macro-subdir autotest", so autotest will search:


Just as with --include-envvar, the --site-macro-subdir option is not
intended to be used from the command line; it's only really useful in
