Yes. That's right. thx.

well... this is how I did it:

1 - initially I tried to put only this: include_HEADERS = foo.h bar.h in
include/ I thought it would work but it did not... when I
ran make it compiled everything ok in the src dir but complained about
'nothing to do for all-am' in the include dir. This is probably because
automake did not generate, and configure did not generate a
Makefile.... any ideas if this is the correct approach ??? and why a
Makefile was not generated at all in the include dir ????

2 - I tried putting include_HEADERS = $(srcdir)/../include/foo.h, remove
the include declaration dir from the top-level .... and it
worked just fine....

I was expecting there would be a way to declare include_HEADERS right in
the include/ ??? that way I wouldn't have to declare the
relative paths to the HEADERS in the src/ ??? any comments....

thanks a lot
