Automake's user docs are nonexistent :-(.  This is described in the
GNU Coding Standards.  Really it would be nice if we had a separate
document that explained the standard targets to the user.  People
could distribute this in their packages.

I wrote a patch to add some installcheck docs to automake.texi.
Thanks for noticing this.

installcheck is still a bit bare.  Not many people use it.
