Hi Ralf,

Some packages install "build-aux" files (config.guess, config.sub,
install-sh et al) so that their add-ons can rely on them.
It would seem to be a relatively easy:

AC_PATH_PROG(foo_path, foo)
aux_dir=`foo -print-config-dir`

Automake currently expects the argument to AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR to be a
shell literal.  That might be a regression, I haven't checked.  I'd
need to look though what it takes to lift the restriction (there might
also be assumptions like that in Autoconf).

note also that my symlink hack results in this line in the generated

depcomp = $(SHELL) $(top_srcdir)/$cl_cv_clisp_libdir/build-aux/depcomp

which is definitely wrong because $cl_cv_clisp_libdir will be a full path like /usr/lib/clisp/
