Developers who are used to the simplicity of
make for small
projects on a single system might be daunted at the prospect of
learning to use Automake and Autoconf. As your software is
distributed to more and more users, however, you otherwise
quickly find yourself putting lots of effort into reinventing the
services that the GNU build tools provide, and making the
same mistakes that they once made and overcame. (Besides, since
you’re already learning Autoconf, Automake is a piece of cake.)
There are a number of places that you can go to for more information on the GNU build tools.
