If you do a:

% cd gnome/cvs # or wherever
% for i in %; do
for> test -f $i/$i.m4 && cp $i/$i.m4 /usr/share/aclocal/
for> done

then you don't even have to include the -I flag (no pun intended.)
I juse pass --prefix=/opt/gnome to and everything (more or
less) works for me.

This is also what I advocate in the FAQ; if you discover anything else
which needs to be done, then let me know so I can update it.
