 5.3 Auto-generating aclocal.m4
 Automake includes a number of Autoconf macros which can be used in your
 package; some of them are actually required by Automake in certain
 situations.  These macros must be defined in your `aclocal.m4';
 otherwise they will not be seen by `autoconf'.
    The `aclocal' program will automatically generate `aclocal.m4' files
 based on the contents of `'.  This provides a convenient
 way to get Automake-provided macros, without having to search around.
 Also, the `aclocal' mechanism is extensible for use by other packages.
    At startup, `aclocal' scans all the `.m4' files it can find, looking
 for macro definitions.  Then it scans `'.  Any mention of
 one of the macros found in the first step causes that macro, and any
 macros it in turn requires, to be put into `aclocal.m4'.
    The contents of `acinclude.m4', if it exists, are also automatically
 included in `aclocal.m4'.  This is useful for incorporating local
 macros into `configure'.
    `aclocal' accepts the following options:
      Look for the macro files in DIR instead of the installation
      directory.  This is typically used for debugging.
      Print a summary of the command line options and exit.
 `-I DIR'
      Add the directory DIR to the list of directories searched for
      `.m4' files.
      Cause the output to be put into FILE instead of `aclocal.m4'.
      Prints the name of the directory which `aclocal' will search to
      find the `.m4' files.  When this option is given, normal processing
      is suppressed.  This option can be used by a package to determine
      where to install a macro file.
      Print the names of the files it examines.
      Print the version number of Automake and exit.
