This is Automake, a Makefile generator.  It was inspired by the 4.4BSD
make and include files, but aims to be portable and to conform to the
GNU Coding Standards for Makefile variables and targets.

Automake is a Perl script.  The input files are called
The output files are called; they are intended for use
with Autoconf.  Automake requires certain things to be done in your

Variable assignment lines in pull in defaults from various
little *.am files.

To use Automake, replace your files with
files.  Read the documentation to see what to do.

This package also includes the "aclocal" program.  aclocal is a
program to generate an `aclocal.m4' based on the contents of
`'.  It is useful as an extensible, maintainable mechanism
for augmenting autoconf.  It is intended that other package authors
will write m4 macros which can be automatically used by aclocal.

Automake has a test suite.  Use

	make check

to run it.  Capture its output in case of failing tests.  For more
information, you can influence testing with the variables VERBOSE,
MAKE, TESTS, keep_testdirs.  So for example, to run tests/check.test
verbosely using gmake and to inspect the test directory afterwards,
enter the tests directory and use

	env VERBOSE=yes TESTS=check.test keep_testdirs=yes MAKE=gmake \
	  gmake -e check

Automake has a page on the web.  See:
