Technically, we're not really changing our stance here.
If all of the packages putting aclocal bits are -devel packages, then it
should be ok to let automake own that directory, and have those -devel
packages depend on automake. If we've got non-devel packages doing this,
I don't think every package shipping an autoconf macro should
mandatorily depend in automake. It should be left to the packager.
So if /usr/share/aclocal isn't owned by the filesystem package, packages
have to own /usr/share/aclocal.
