No, it's not the only problem.  The whole problem is that the
definition of @INC inside automake is performed after -I, hence -I
will always be overridden, and therefore chances are high to test
uninstalled automake with installed am files etc.

I think the current solution is ugly, very much agreed, but much safer.
