That doesn't help the out-of-the-box problem, because the first macro that
isn't substituted is AM_CONFIG_HEADER (which is in
/usr/share/aclocal/header.m4; even if I use ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I
/usr/share/aclocal -I /usr/gnome/share/aclocal" it doesn't seem to work.

Actually, it doesn't appear to work even with my hacked aclocal.m4. The only
thing I can think of is that autoconf is ignoring its search paths completely.

There are several other things that aren't substituted earlier in
./configure, too - I get lines in the output such as:

checking whether gcc accepts -g... (cached) yes
checking how to run the C preprocessor... (cached) gcc -E
checking for ANSI C header files... (cached) yes
./configure: AM_PROG_LIBTOOL: command not found
./configure: AM_MAINTAINER_MODE: command not found
./configure: GNOME_COMPILE_WARNINGS: command not found
./configure: GNOME_X_CHECKS: command not found
./configure: GNOME_SUPPORT_CHECKS: command not found
checking for mawk... mawk
checking for perl5... no

Any ideas anyone?
