Today I wrote a dumb little script to estimate how often automake is
used. The script searches a set of SRPM files for `configure.in' and
`Makefile.am' files, and generates a report showing how many packages
use autoconf and how many use automake.
Then I ran this script on all the SRPMs in Red Hat Linux 6.2 (the most
recent source CD I have conveniently lying around right now).
There were 503 packages.
Of these, 229 use autoconf (i.e., have a "configure.in" file --
error is likely to be small)
125 packages use automake (i.e., have a "Makefile.am" file)
So automake is in use by about 55% of all the packages using autoconf.
I wonder if that percentage has changed between 6.2 and now.
I don't know if this is interesting, but now we know it :-)
