One such section starts:

       In the list below, we use the name “maude” to refer to the program or
    library.  In your ‘’ you would replace this with the
    canonical name of your program.  This list also refers to “maude” as a
    program, but in general the same rules apply for both static and dynamic
    libraries; the documentation below notes situations where programs and
    libraries differ.

I guess my view is that in all the years of Automake, if we're first
hearing about it now, then it probably isn't really that confusing.
Also AFAICT it isn't mentioned on stack overflow.
