5.4 The GNU Build System

Automake is used to facilitate the writing of power Makefile. Libtool eases the creation of libraries, especially dynamic ones. Autoconf is required by Automake: we do not address portability issues for this project. See Autotools Tutorial, for documentation.

Using info is pleasant, for instance ‘info autoconf’ on any properly set up system.
