That cannot be right.

You only need to put the macros that are only found in "aclocal.m4" also
into "acinclude.m4". If you wish to be thorough, you do

        # cp aclocal.m4 acinclude.m4
        # cvs commit

End of problem.

Now, if you wish to do the Right Thing, dig up my "./" patch and
get this mess cleaned up once and for all. It cleanly and nicely splits up
acinclude.m4 into separate files in an m4/ directory (similar to how the
macros are stored in your /usr/share/aclocal directory), then
autogenerates everything properly from there. I can supply an updated
patch if you like.
