Hello all,

As I couldn't find anything on this specific issue, better ask...
After being able to compile my code with help of autotools, now i want to
deliver it as a package. In this case I dont want to give out my
and Makefile.ams in order to avoid some extra fiddling from others.

Why?  If your package is GPL, then not distributing is a violation of your license (the GPL requires
that your source code include the files that you edit in order to modify

If it's _his_ source code (and assuming that _he_ licensed it GPL), he can distribute whatever set of files he chooses. The restriction applies for files that he gets from someone else.
