Looks good, but its missing Makefile.am rule to generate the images
from the .fig files. It'd be nicer to use PNG instead of GIF and
get nicely anti-aliased, transparent background images. ImageMagick
can do this fairly easily using a rule like

%.png: %.fig
	convert -rotate 90 $< $@

The 'rotate 90' bit is because for some wierd reason it defaults to
rotating it 90 degrees in a direction you don't want unless you look
at images side-ways on :-)
