Hello Russell,

I want the "unimain" program built first, then use it to generate, which is then compiled and linked into

  bin_PROGRAMS = unimain
  unimain_SOURCES = unimain.c /usr/share/unicode/UnicodeData.txt
      ./unimain $< > $@

Then you need a dependency from on unimain: unimain$(EXEEXT) /usr/share/unicode/UnicodeData.txt
        ./unimain$(EXEEXT) $< > $@

Ok, that works thanks:)

However, "make install" installs unimain into /usr/local/bin

How do i stop this program from being installed?

I did:

      rm $(DESTDIR)$(bindir)/unimain$(EXEEXT)

This deletes it out of /usr/local/bin after installing it which
seems kind of kludgy.

Furthermore, please don't hard-code absolute paths like

in your makefiles.  Make them configurable by configure.  Maybe your
users don't have root rights on their system but have the file installed
below their home somewhere?
