automake is trying to tell me something, but I cannot make out exactly what.
The literal meaning of the messages is pretty clear, but what they caution
about are things that appear to me to be correct.

Yes, I see the
  ``If 'LT_INIT' is in 'configure.ac', make sure its
    definition is in aclocal's search path.''
stuff, but if I google the string, I just get advice
to add LT_INIT to my configure.ac file.  Pretty useless.
If someone would just be kind enough to adjust the message
so I can determine how to put the thing into the aclocal search
path, I would be really happy.  Thank you!  Regards, Bruce

P.S. it is *not* defined in the m4 subdirectory, which
is created by the gnulib-tool script.
