first time automaking question

hey all--

A few weeks ago I began the transition over to autoconf/automake by
taking my semester's project and incorporating autoconf into the
package.  everything works really fine, only now I'm having trouble
incorporating automake into the fray.  namely, there are two
specific problems:

        - ./configure now tests for auto* and makeinfo

        is that really necessary?  I'd really like to have the configure
        process have nothing to do with the autostuff.  I took a look at
        a couple other gnu packages (tar, gzip) and they don't seem to do 
        it, and my doesn't look too different...

        - my config.h is consistently nuked by autoheader

        whereas previously my config.h was updated from AC_CONFIG_HEADER,
        it's now AM_CONFIG_HEADER and always ends up being blank, save a
        line saying it's generated by autoheader

btw, I've read over the documentation of the online manual page, but if
I've missed something please feel free to point me there :)  oh, and if
it's at all helpful, i'm using 1.4-p4 on a debian box with autoconf 2.53
