> For some changes a Linux distro might make to couchdb when packaging, the build might
reinvoke aclocal, automake, autoconf, etc.
> If "aclocal" gets invoked, it doesn't know that some of the macros are stored in the
m4/ subdirectory.  This can be fixed by adding the following line to the toplevel Makefile.am:
>     ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS = -I m4
> This is documented in Section 6.3.4 (Handling Local Macros) of the Automake 1.10 manual.
> It is also recommended to add a line like the following to configure.ac so other tools
know you're using m4/ as the autoconf macro directory:
>     AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR([m4])
> With these two changes, it shouldn't be necessary to explicitly m4_include() m4/ac_check_icu.m4
in configure.ac
