Good news.

I tried _AM_SUBST_NOTMAKE, but I see the following error: error: possibly undefined macro: _AM_SUBST_NOTMAKE
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.

Using m4_pattern_allow lets autoconf finish but then configure fails since
it doesn't know what to do with _AM_SUBST_NOTMAKE.  I grepped through the
source of automake 1.9.6 and didn't find _AM_SUBST_NOTMAKE.  Any chance the
macro has a different name?

Thanks for your help.
