Dima and Matthew,

Thank you guys for working on this!  Any final status on the situation?

Dima, could you explain to me the changes you've made with regard to

-INCLUDES = -I $(top_srcdir)/include
+include $(top_srcdir)/include/Makefile.am

I'm no configure expert and so this looks very different to me.
The first seems to add a -I sword/include to the include path during
The second seems to include the include/Makefile.am during autoconf

Again, I'm ignorant to these matters, but just wanted us to check before
committing code that might not be related to the problem at hand and
might break something else right before a release.

Thanks for bearing with my scrutiny.
