Make dist didn't work for me, either, until I created all of the
documentation files in the doc/ subdirectory using robodoc...  I had
to do this as a separate step...

I noticed (after I posted it) that 0.16.1 said "Any", but I couldn't
figure out how to change it.

Not sure what you're saying...  are you saying I should upgrade autoconf
and automake on my system to newer versions?   Is that what controls this?

Also, as long as I have your attention, Carey...  Some people on the list
were discussing putting together some additional documentation for the

them... :)
