In my opinion, everything that the emake install script install should be there.
It''s upon us to customize the autotools to install only the needed things.

I think they should contains headers, maybe we need to fix something,
i'll investigate.

You shouldn't have to worry about this.

Maybe example.services should be rename example.services.sample whith
some comments at the beginning of it to explain it's purpose

all this is good

does avahi-discover works?

I think we should fix the autotools a bit to install headers and .pc files
What about the doxygen doc?
I can try to fix these little issues

for the ebuild you could/should add some dodoc README etc....
