I am a newbie and trying to use the auto tools to build my project. I
am using libtool(with autoconf/automake) to build static as well as
shared libraries. When I do 'make' the libraries are created under
'src' directory in directory '.libs'. I want the make file( generated
using automake) to create/copy these libraries to 'lib' directory
under my project root. I don't want to use 'make install' for that.
What should I do??

        for library in $(lib_LTLIBRARIES) ; do \
          $(LIBTOOL) --mode=install $(INSTALL) $library  
/usr/local/lib/$library ; \

should work. Then you can do 'make install-my-libs' to install just the libraries rather than 'make install'.

A more complete version can already be found as the 'install-libLTLIBRARIES' target in Automake makefiles so you could just use

install-my-libs: install-libLTLIBRARIES

Here is the Automake version:

        test -z "$(libdir)" || $(mkdir_p) "$(DESTDIR)$(libdir)"
        @list='$(lib_LTLIBRARIES)'; for p in $$list; do \
          if test -f $$p; then \
            f=$(am__strip_dir) \
            echo " $(LIBTOOL) --mode=install $(libLTLIBRARIES_INSTALL) 
$(INSTALL_STRIP_FLAG) '$$p' '$(DESTDIR)$(libdir)/$$f'"; \
            $(LIBTOOL) --mode=install $(libLTLIBRARIES_INSTALL) $(INSTALL_STRIP_FLAG) 
"$$p" "$(DESTDIR)$(libdir)/$$f"; \
          else :; fi; \
