ok.  I'll try again.  I'm using automake-1.9.2 and autoconf-2.59 btw.

My complete is now:

info_TEXINFOS=  pcb.texi
dist_pkgdata_DATA=      ${html_docs} ${ps_docs} ${pdf_docs}

html_docs=      ${info_TEXINFOS:.texi=.html}
ps_docs=        ${} 
pdf_docs=       ${info_TEXINFOS:.texi=.pdf}

I had some other stuff to, but I've stripped it down to only have whats
listed here to help figure it out.  I have verified that pcb.{ps,pdf,html}
as well as the .info{,-1,-2,-3,-4,-5,-6} files end up in the distfile.
But sure enough, 'make clean' does:

rm -rf pcb.aux pcb.cp pcb.cps pcb.fn pcb.fns pcb.kys pcb.log \
  pcb.pgs pcb.tmp pcb.toc pcb.tps pcb.vr pcb.vrs \
  pcb.dvi pcb.pdf pcb.html
rm -f vti.tmp

Maybe this is an automake bug?  I scanned over the automake code a bit,
but I'm not really a perl programmer.  However, it looks like it always
wants to make the various texinfo outputs get cleaned by 'make clean'.

I just verified that 'make distcheck' is still ok.  I make use of that
quite a lot.
