I agree.

I've noticed that when installing my own versions of autoconf and automake,
part of the manual post-installation procedure must include running a command
like this (adapted assuming you've installed with --prefix=/opt/local):

    printf '%s/share/aclocal\n' /opt/local /usr
      >> $(aclocal --print-ac-dir)/dirlist
