Probably need to explicitely install them during do-install or post-install. 
That's likely the only way to be sure it gets to be where you want it to.

Autotools are a nightmare. With *BSD one could even ask if they do more harm 
than good in many cases. It's _always_ messy. Even on *i*ux I sometimes think 
this is the case. I guess it helps folks to get generated Makefiles.

If I were you I'd use post-install and be done with it (if carefully handled 
and added to plist it will also always be removed as-should upon uninstall). 
I always think that if you can't control what's supposed to be used but you 
can easily control your own stupid focussed solution, go for the latter.

HTH,
