I'm trying to rewrite my's to make better use of Automake's built-in variables. I'm a little stuck on how to get my program's (tuxmath) data files installed in a heirarchical tree. My current scheme puts the data
under /usr/local/share/tuxmath, with deeper directories such
as /usr/local/share/tuxmath/images, /usr/local/share/tuxmath/images/ backgrounds,
and so forth.

If I just use:

dist_pkgdata_DATA = bkgd1.jpg bkgd2.jpg bkgd3.jpg

in my for the backgrounds subdirectory, the files just wind up in
$(pkgdata) itself, i.e. /usr/local/share/tuxmath.

Is there a proper, automated, "Automake Way" to get the whole data tree
installed in the desired location?

Hi David,
create the directory hierarchy in your source tree and then list all the files in nobase_dist_pkgdata_DATA, e.g.:
  nobase_dist_pkgdata_DATA = images/vortex.pgm sounds/whirl.ogg
