If you do this, where will you specify the `--install` flag to
aclocal? Still in ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS?

I use 'autoreconf --install', which avoids needing to put --install in ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS. But if --install is something that you have grown used to sticking in ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS, then yes, it would probably be nice to have a configure.ac counterpart that automake would understand to mean automatic addition of --install even for plain 'autoreconf'.
