| In node 'Configuring Other Packages in Subdirectories' the doc says
|      Likewise, if a DIR contains
|      `configure.ac' but no `configure', the Cygnus `configure' script
|      found by `AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR' is used.
| Please replace configure.ac with configure.in here. The Cygnus trees
| have 'configure.in' files (precisely because they are _not_ processed
| by autoconf). The _AC_OUTPUT_SUBDIRS macro indeed tests for configure.in.

Thanks, I'm installing this:

address@hidden NB: Yes, below we mean configure.in, not configure.ac.
 If a given @var{dir} contains @command{configure.gnu}, it is run instead
 of @command{configure}.  This is for packages that might use a
 non-Autoconf script @command{Configure}, which can't be called through a
 wrapper @command{configure} since it would be the same file on
 case-insensitive filesystems.  Likewise, if a @var{dir} contains
address@hidden but no @command{configure}, the Cygnus
address@hidden but no @command{configure}, the Cygnus
 @command{configure} script found by @code{AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR} is used.
 The subdirectory @command{configure} scripts are given the same command
