I deeply apologize for this mistake and for not being online when you
needed it. You've probably noticed too that every file that needs to be
in the distribution must be listed in the Makefile.am. Headers in the
*_HEADERS variables for instance, and what does not belong to standard
variables should go in EXTRA_DIST variable. And this allows the
make dist to generate a clean .tar.gz file.
I've tested that it works when doing the migration to automake but
since new files were added and other removed in the meantime, it's
possible that some of them are missing in the generated distribution
if the relevant variable in the Makefile.am file has not been updated.
This mechanism may seem unecessarily complex but it has the great advantage
that the CVS tree can contain files and directories that are not included
in the distribution (rx for instance).
