I am sure that this is some config issue, but Google gives no help
on this one.  "make" and "make check" are all happy, but when I
get to "make distcheck" it dies in the doc directory doing strange
things that I cannot even speculate about.

make[2]: Entering directory `/home/bkorb/ag/ag/autogen-5.7.1/_build/doc'
restore=: && backupdir=".am$$" && \
am__cwd=`pwd` && cd ../../doc && \
rm -rf $backupdir && mkdir $backupdir && \
for f in[0-9][0-9][0-9] \
   autogen.i[0-9] autogen.i[0-9][0-9]; do \
  if test -f $f; then mv $f $backupdir; restore=mv; else :; fi; \
done; \
cd "$am__cwd"; \
if /bin/sh /home/bkorb/ag/ag/autogen-5.7.1/_build/config/missing \
   --run makeinfo-I../../autoopts -I../autoopts -I ../../doc \
 -o autogen.texi; \
then \
  rc=0; \
  cd ../../doc; \
else \
  rc=$?; \
  cd ../../doc && \
  $restore $backupdir/* `echo "./" | sed 's|[^/]*$||'`; \
fi; \
rm -rf $backupdir; exit $rc
mkdir: cannot create directory `.am15097': Permission denied Permission denied
make[2]: *** [] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/bkorb/ag/ag/autogen-5.7.1/_build/doc'
make[1]: *** [check-recursive] Error 1

So, it looks like it was trying to create a backup directory named,
".am15097" but it could not.  However:

$ ls -dog /home/bkorb/ag/ag/autogen-5.7.1/_build/doc
drwxr-xr-x  2 845 Jul  9 14:13 /home/bkorb/ag/ag/autogen-5.7.1/_build/doc

it looks like it has permission to me.  What's going on?  :)

Thank you.  Regards, Bruce
