Macros in cvs modules


Right now every package on cvs that needs to use Gnome's autoconf
macros has to include the virtual macros/ subdirectory.  This is
inconsistent with the way .m4 files work elsewhere, where they are
picked from $(prefix)/share/aclocal and similar.  Also, the Gnome .m4
files are not installed on the system, so third party programs cannot
use our nice Autoconf macros.

I think the Gnome packages that contain .m4 files should install them
in the standard location, just like Gtk+ does.  Also, the other
modules should be made to read the macros from there, not from the
macros/ directory.
