Right now you cannot do this with _DATA.  This is PR/383.

There are at least two workarounds:

 1) EXTRA_DIST the directory (so it gets distributed), and
    write your own install-data-local rule.

 2) autoconfiscate the datapackage so that it comes with its own
    `make dist' rule, and nest it into the top-level package.
    (See the `Nested Packages' section of the manuals.)
