is usign dnl for comments in Makefile.am valid? At least my automake
doesn't strip that out and it is still in Makefile. GNU make seems to
ignore that, but what is the point behind using it?

xfce4-mixer> grep dnl panel-plugin/Makefile.am
dnl libmixer_la_DEPENDENCIES = $(top_builddir)/lib/libxfce4mixer.la

make dist seems to stop anyway:
gmake[1]: Entering directory
gmake[1]: *** No rule to make target `testplugin.desktop.in.in', needed
by `distdir'. Stop.
gmake[1]: Leaving directory
