Add a script, "aclocal-flags", which figures out where
1) aclocal expects autoconf/automake macros to be hidden; 2) GTK+ hid its autoconf/automake macros; and, if both places exist but aren't the same directory, returns a "-I" flag to tell aclocal to look in GTK+'s directory. Then have "autogen.sh", and Makefiles in directories with "acinclude.m4" files, use that script and pass what flag it supplies, if any, to aclocal. This should, I hope, avoid problems such as those FreeBSD systems where GTK+ was installed from a port or package (and thus stuck its macros in "/usr/X11R6/share/aclocal") but aclocal doesn't look there. (It doesn't solve the problem of somebody downloading and installing, say, libtool from source - which means it probably shows up under "/usr/local", with its macros in "/usr/local/share/aclocal" - on a system that comes with aclocal (meaning it probably just looks in "/usr/share/aclocal", but that may be best fixed by, whenever you download a source tarball for something that's part of your OS, configuring it to install in the standard system directories and *overwriting* your OS's version.) svn path=/trunk/; revision=2165
