Build both in a different directory to the side.  Keep the source
directory pristine with only source files there.  Build both the debug
and the optimized versions in different, separate directories.

Your use of "<>" is terribly confusing.  What do you
mean by that?  It is not a URL.  Please explain.

In addition to the good online documentation that accompanies the
autotools there is also the good documentation available both online

Really you are to the point that you simply need to try it.  Just jump
in and try some small examples.
