Hi Bernd et al,

Thanks, but it didn't quite work.  However, I tried something slightly 
different that does seem to work.

Here is the target cut and pasted from my (it is all on one line 
but here appears wrapped in my mail program):

        $(MAKE) $(AM_MAKEFLAGS) dist_fonts='AndikaDesRevG.ttf DoulosSILR.ttf 
Rachana_w01.ttf' PACKAGE_TARNAME=tuxtype-f dist

But it still comes out as "tuxtype-1.5.15.tar.gz".  Looking through the 
Makefile, it appears that the tarball gets named after distdir, not 
PACKAGE_TARNAME.  So I tried setting distdir to $(PACKAGE)_f-$(VERSION), as 
below, and it works:

(again, this is all on one line in the actual
        $(MAKE) $(AM_MAKEFLAGS) distdir=$(PACKAGE)_f-$(VERSION) 
dist_fonts='AndikaDesRevG.ttf DoulosSILR.ttf Rachana_w01.ttf' dist

The target now generates the file tuxtype_f-1.5.15.tar.gz

So, now it seems to work exactly as I intended, but is this the right way to 
do it?  Is it "OK" to reset variables such as distdir in this way?

Anyway, thanks - I'm learning!
