Hi Michael,

I wrote the config scripts, and the discussion must have been on the  
Automake mailing list :-) This was just before automake 1.5 was  
released (IIRC) and the discussion might have been about changing it to  
/usr/share/man from /usr/man in their next release... I'll change it to  
whatever they suggest now :-)
