That explains it all.  This won't work for two reasons.

1. include's argument must be a raw filename.  
   We don't support variables here.  
   (Except $(top_srcdir) and $(srcdir) for convenience.)

2. If you include a file in, this included file will be 
   distributed with your package for the same reason is
   distributed.  So this file should be *inside* your source tree,
   or you will have surprises when you run `make dist'.

In short, copy into your source tree, and include
it with



include $(top_srcdir)/makefiles/
