Can anybody who speaks autoconf help us with this?

Subject: memcached 1.1.11 install glitch

Sounds like you're getting close to a new release.  There's a minor
install glitch that you should fix.  I got this on all systems I try
to install on, with /usr/local/man/man1/doc.  'install' tries to
copy doc/memcached.1 to /usr/local/man/man1/doc/memcached.1, and it
should go to /usr/local/man/man1/memcached.1 instead.

Simple fix is to move memcached.1 out of the doc/ subdir and edit
the man_MANS line in;  or have make recurse into doc/
and put a Makefile in there.  I don't know what the complex fix
would be, I speak Makefile about as well as I speak French (je ne
parle pas le metalangue).

    /bin/sh ./mkinstalldirs /usr/local/bin
      /usr/bin/install -c  memcached /usr/local/bin/memcached
    make  install-man1
