This sounds like a good problem to find.  So, the configure 'include'
directive will put all of the files listed in the included file on the
-I compile include path?

Would love for the help.  We have not had a autotools maintainer for a

So, have we resolved Matthew's troubles and we're ready for a commit? 
Or is there still something that needs to be changed?
