The version information is important, thanks. Since the problem only
occurs with a development version, it's a bit early spend energy to
patch projects that use AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR.

Yes, it does sound like a possible regression.

If there's a problem with a stable release of Autotools, then I may
need to commit the patch. When the issue is only in a development
snapshot, there's a chance it will get fixed before the next release.
