No, not anymore. I fixed all those and committed them some hours ago. The
current sources have no mention of headers without .hh anymore. (except

Ah, yes, that one should *definitely* not be there. I've been staring at
that Makefile.am for propably hours today, and I didn't notice it.
Removing it removed the last thing that went wrong.

Now it seems to work, at least I can edit a file and do an incremental
