Incorrect check message for maintainer mode

Bug #588475 reported by Guillaume Melquiond

automake1.11 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When putting AM_MAINTAINER_MODE([enable]) into a file, the configure message is

checking whether to disable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... $USE_MAINTAINER_MODE

Notice the "disable" part of the message; it is plain wrong. The AM_MAINTAINER_MODE macro does not invert the meaning of --enable/disable-maintainer-mode, it just changes the default value. The attached patch fixes the issue, so that, whatever the default value is, the message is always displayed as

checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... $USE_MAINTAINER_MODE
