Actually, it looks like this bug has been there for quite a long time, only 
until I applied my year-old patches from libtool-next to make the bootstrap 
process leaner, it was masked by the fact that the testsuite was prebuilt in 
$(srcdir)/tests before running configure.  Nice catch, thanks! :)

Anyway, fixed by the appended patch which I'll push as obvious presently.

tests: ensure VPATH autom4te search path can find autotests.

* Makefile.am (tests/testsuite): Passing only $(srcdir) include path
to autom4te is unable to find tests/package.m4, and passing only
$(srcdir)/tests breaks VPATH build searches for TESTSUITE_AT files,
which are relative to $(srcdir)... so we pass both!
