  Automake and Autoconf Basics
  presented by: Mark K. Kim

    Autoconf and Automake are packages for making your software more
    portable and to simplify building it -- usually on someone else's
    system. Autoconf makes your packages more portable by performing tests
    to discover system characteristics before the package is compiled.
    Your source code can then adapt to these differences.  Automake is a tool
    for generating 'Makefile's -- descriptions of what to build -- that
    conform to a number of standards.  Automake substantially simplifies
    the process of describing the organization of a package and performs
    additional functions such as dependency tracking between source files.
