You would normally write a shorter script called configure.ac, which
is a list of macros expanded by a program called autoconf to produce
the configure script. You would also put some other macros in a file
called Makefile.am, which are expanded by a program called automake to
produce a file called Makefile.in. The configure script would then
read Makefile.in to produce the final Makefile. (I think that's right,
someone else can correct that if I'm wrong.)

Not that I know of.

I think most project maintainers just use autoconf, automake, and a
couple of extra helper scripts, and edit the macros with an editor
like Emacs or vi. For PSPP, Ben packaged all that stuff in Smake,
which also inserts code from gnulib.
