I don't know.  I'm an automake novice.  I was just working my way through
the autobook, creating files and a script as I went
along.  It's the only document I've found that tries to integrate usage of
autoconf, automake, and libtool.  I essentially pasted the two sets of rules at the top of

The accompanying text gave me no indication that the first two lines was
optional.  I read it as "define lib_LIBRARIES to get a static archive and
lib_LTLIBRARIES to get a libtool archive".  Commenting out the first two
lines does get rid of the error message and my build seems to work.

Thanks for the help,
