C.1 aclocal

The aclocal program creates the file `aclocal.m4' by combining stock installed macros, user defined macros and the contents of `acinclude.m4' to define all of the macros required by `configure.in' in a single file. aclocal was created as a fix for some missing functionality in Autoconf, and as such we consider it a wart. In due course aclocal itself will disappear, and Autoconf will perform the same function unaided.
