aclocal-1.7 is the directory to take automake-1.7.*'s *.m4 own
macros-files and an internal implementation detail.

aclocal is supposed to take those *.m4 macros to be provided by packages
outside of automake. It is supposed to be shared between different
versions of automake and external packages

Please set your mail-header (reply-to) properly if you don't want to
receive personal responses or refrain from sending mails to public
mailing lists, instead of attaching such disclaimers to email.

mailing-lists, because lists tend to suffer from long latencies
and to be unreliable.]
