See http://www.kaffe.org/pipermail/kaffe/2004-February/045304.html for

Looks quite useful to me.

Unfortunately, the Makefile.in files are generated automatically by 
automake, so patching them wouldn't be very useful, since the change 
will be overwritten as soon as we run developers/autogen.sh again.

Instead, it would be nice if you could post the patch to the automake 
mailing list [1], so that it can be integrated into the next version of 
automake, and make the lives of all automake users a little better.
