You don't, since that's generally a bad idea; see:


Once ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS is deprecated, what we need to do is to improve
'distcheck' to verify that all third-party '.m4' files necessary to
re-bootstrap you package are actually distributed.  If they are not,
'distcheck' will fail, and the user can be advised to re-bootstrap the
package manually using "aclocal --install".
