I'm not sure I understood your need but here's a link that helped me as an 
autotools-beginner :
In the end, i'm finding that unless you have to deal with already "autotooled" 
packages, or you want to make your package realy portable, it's simpler to 
stick with a plain Makefile, and leave it to ltib's spoofing to set the 
libraries, header path, toolchain etc...

hope this helped.

Objet : [Ltib] Creating auto build files

I have been having some problems with the autobuild files of a package I
am creating.

Looking at another package I am familiar with (gnubg) it has the following

set -x
aclocal -I m4
libtoolize --force --copy
automake --add-missing --copy

At times I have gotten message telling me I have mixed versions of file
formats; which brings me to my question...

This is a real stupid beginner question... It may be worth a FAQ entry is it
so basic...

What are the correct input files to this process?
? others?

And do I need to run any of the tools before I make my package?

I looked around and found the following


I don't think I need libtoolize

Only a couple are in a BIN directory

Anyone have a autoconf 101 web page?

I have done some searches and not found a clear answer for my confusion...
