And thank you for your feedback. Ive read the infopage, but it didnt 
exactly say what I needed to do. (I believe it describes the correct part 
though) Pardon me for sounding like a fool here, but autoconf and automake 
are pretty new to me, so what might seem obvious to an experienced user 
could be difficult to understand for me.

In my ROOT/ I got so far:

AUTOMAKE_OPTIONS = foreign 1.4

I think I should then add in my ROOT/

man_MANS = manpagename.8

where manpagename.8 resides in ROOT/man/ Perhaps I even
have to add:

SUBDIRS = src man

to ROOT/

Also I believe I need to have a (And perhaps 
file in the ROOT/man/ directory which automake processes. But Im unable 
to find what the content of this file should be.

Thank you for any further input, and please apologize if my knowledge of
these issues are poor at best.
