Enhancing nobase_

Hi autofriends!

nobase_ is really a nice feature to cope with a structured hierarchy of files. But it does not work well with packages that avoid recursive Makefiles. In my case for instance, my package has a hierarchy of files in $(top_srcdir)/include, but it has no include/, just $(top_srcdir)/, so I cannot use nobase_include_HEADERS, I have to declare a bazillion of include subdirs.

It would be nice if there were a means to use nobase_, but to be able to declare the base. Maybe

include_BASE = include/

or something like that. Actually, it would leave less clutter in the Makefile if the include_BASE was *added* where needed, rather than removed for install. Instead of

include_HEADERS = include/foo.hh include/bar.hh

it would read

base_include_HEADERS = include/
nobase_include_HEADERS = foo.hh bar.hh

and automake would generate include_HEADERS as include/foo.hh include/ bar.hh.
