See this ref: [0]....


I don't see "/usr/etc" in [0]. What I see is /usr/share/etc, i.e., $(datarootdir)/etc. It's not clear why the latter name doesn't suffice for this need, as files in $(datarootdir) are also supplied by the distro and are read-only.

Also, make-stds.texi and standards.texi are upstream from Autoconf; to make changes to them, please email I'll cc this to that email address to give them a heads-up.
