Pavel, thanks for timely response.

I'm brand new to using automake/autoconf, and I'm using it to package a 
distribution of my company's product for a client.  I need the package to work 
both a Linux/GNU as well as an SGI/IRIX system.  When I test the distribution 
on the SGI,
the ./configure tries to use the *.am files and I get all kinds of dependency 
problems, and
I don't think my client will have automake or autoconf.  Shouldn't configure 
NOT require
(nor even try to use) autoconf or automake?  If not, why are the files 
automatically packaged
with the distribution?
