Then make fix the alien interface so it uses the gnu interface.

Also, deal with the interface problem so both interfaces can be
cleanly used on the same system (without having to hack $PATH).
It's possible to do this by providing a dinstall-info and a
ginstall-info, but I'd be happier with a --debian and a --gnu

Once this is done, maybe submit a patch for automake that 
tries to use the --gnu option before trying without that option.
