Hi Andreas,

also I wonder:
what about builddir vs. sourcedir? how do you handle that?

if people have a tar.gz with pre-build documentation, it
is in sourcedir. if people checkout svn and build in a seperate
build root, the documentation is created in builddir.

does automake handle that automaticaly?
IMHO it seems confusing and error prone to treat those two cases separately. To me, a file is either located in srcdir or builddir, independent on whether I build from an svn checkout or from a tarball. For instance, the `' is always located in srcdir, also when it is created (built) in an svn checkout. You said before that you wanted to treat documentation as `' and then I would have the docs in srcdir.
