[Mod_transform] Issue finding ${top_srcdir}/include when compiling outside the tree

Hi All,

First of nice module. I have been wanting to write something like this,
but I guess you beat me too it. Good stuff.

I am attempting to compile mod_transform 0.6.0 on Debian Linux using the following
config.nice configuration.

------< config.nice >---------
#! /bin/sh
# Created by configure

"../../../mod_transform-0.6.0/configure" \
"--with-apxs=/usr/bin/apxs2" \
"--with-xslt-prefix=/usr" \
"--with-xml-prefix=/usr" \

Where "mod_transform-0.6.0" is the untarred directory downloaded from

When compiling outside of the distribution directory the compiler can
not find "mod_transform-0.6.0/include/mod_transform_private.h"

If I hand code a -I${top_srcdir}/include to COMPILE in src/Makefile it
compiles fine. 

I am not exactly sure how you would like to see this added to the autoconf
setup, so I figured I'd ask. If you want me to take a stab at modifing
configure.ac to have it include this path, let me know, but I am not sure
how you would like to see this addressed.

Any suggestions?
