What's the automake and autoconf versions you're running? We install docs as
"data" and it's written in as


Therefore everything in xdocs directory should go to $docsdir. It seems it's
not copying your files in xdocs directory recursively. (May be because of a
older version of automake). Anyway I think we have to fix this too, because
docs should not just copy as data.

Excellant, you're welcome.
