I used more or less the same rules as Ralf Wildenhues added for the
binutils project back in 2009-08, when he fixed a lot of
issues for us.  Judging from his activity in the automake project, I'd
say he knew a thing or two about automake, so I personally would be a
little cautious about using some other construct!
