Hrmpf.  That required regenerating tests/ with
Automake-1.9.6.  That exposed an interesting bug in that version (since
fixed in CVS Automake):  {tests,man}/ contain code like this:

|       $(mkdir_p) $(distdir)/$(srcdir)

which, depending on how interesting your directory layout is, could
create a directory at some unwanted location.  Not really dangerous in
any way, but something to be aware of.

While we're at it: which version is used to regenerate `configure',
should I ever need to do that?  The just-checked-in one?  The previous
one?  Whatever comes handy?
