My case is different from that in two respects.

One is that I meet with this issue when using vanilla GNU autotools,
while you speak about the FreeBSDized versions. That's not that a big
deal, the proposed workaround is easy to adopt:

  echo /usr/local/share/aclocal > \

(in fact, I did this before starting this thread).

The second -- which finally defeats me -- is that you report
an aclocal failure, while I see the error with autoconf.

The dirlist thingy is aclocal specific, and doesn't seem to
improve the situation with autoconf.
