I'm rather newcomer to automake, so my patch was intended only as
suggestion. I agree it's better to wait for someone who understands
this. I changed it to use "" and added as attachement for case you'll be
interested. But as I said, it is only suggestion.

No, but this may be because I build only libraries and executables, no
docs or others. Install also seems to work.
