Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] autogen: allow aclocal to receive arguments via an environment variable

On Mac OS X, the "Homebrew" build system (one of the three main ones)

This patch adds a simple way to pass this configuration information to
aclocal, using an environment variable called ACLOCAL_FLAGS. This allows
the packaging of libvirt into the Homebrew build system.

     $ export ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I /path/to/m4/macro/dir/"

Although this patch works, I'm kind of expecting Eric will have a better way
of achieving what this is trying to do, so this will get NACKed.  No stress. :)

Shoot, I still need to review this patch upstream on gnulib, since it touches gnulib.
