Uh-huh. I actually kind of agree, although the top level file

Um, yes, but autoconf seems to like top_srcdir rather than topsrcdir,
and I was looking for something which would (temporarily) be compatible
with *both* Cygnus and autoconf. The hidden goal of most of my patches
is to minimize the amount of meaningless nomenclature replacements in
the autoconfiscation patch.
