It's a fairly good assumption that if someone sets ACLOCAL_FLAGS, then
they will set it correctly. Following is the code snippet from
GTK+'s autogen.sh that checks the no-ACLOCAL_FLAGS case.
I've Cc'ed Shawn Amundson who wrote the test, but I think it should
be fine to steal in any case ... it's not doing anything
if test -z "$ACLOCAL_FLAGS"; then
for file in $m4list
if [ ! -f "$acdir/$file" ]; then
echo "WARNING: aclocal's directory is $acdir,
echo " no file $acdir/$file"
echo " You may see fatal macro warnings
echo " If these files are installed in
/some/dir, set the ACLOCAL_FLAGS "
echo " environment variable to \"-I
/some/dir\", or install"
echo " $acdir/$file."
