Because aclocal is slowly being deprecated, and will eventually vanish
entirely.  Managing Autoconf macros really isn't a job for Automake.

The new utopia is to create a directory within your source called "m4"
(or some such) and in declare AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR([m4])

Then when you run libtoolize, it will copy the appropriate m4 files into
this directory for you.

One day a version of Autoconf will use these, but for now when you run
aclocal it'll add an "m4_include" line to aclocal.m4 for each of these
files (rather than including them verbatim).

Have you ever, ever felt like this?
Had strange things happen?  Are you going round the twist?
