An alternative would be to copy-or-link the .el file into the
destination directory. Indeed. That would work without breaking pre-23
emacs, so I will adjust my automake patch before pushing it to master.


However, please do consider undoing that breaking change before the
next emacs release, so we have a chance to release a fixed version of
automake before you remove the functionality being used in all
existing files.
