Do you still have this problem?
I couldn't reproduce it.

I wrote this test case to see:

    #! /bin/sh

    # Test for header installation.
    # Rerport from Dave Morrison

    . $srcdir/defs || exit 1

    cat > << 'END'
    include_HEADERS = foo.idl

    : > foo.idl


Running it with `make check TESTS=idl.test VERBOSE=t' succeeds.

If you still see the failure can you tell me how to modify this test
case to display it?

Nope.  If you still see the problem it is definitely a bug.

I looked at the ChangeLog but didn't see anything that looked like it
fixed this.
