Hi Russell,

  Autotools: a practitioner's guide to Autoconf, Automake and Libtool

I realized a lot of useful things after that. The main thing that makes
it easy is that a real project is stepped through with lots of side discussions, and high-level overviews put things in to perspective. I'd really like to have
a hard-copy book of that tutorial.

Thanks very much for the positive feedback. A much enhanced (and somewhat corrected) version of the book is scheduled to be published in May 2010 by No Starch Press:

Best regards,

After that, i could understand the autoconf manual. I was on dos/windows
up to nearly yr2000 or so, so i had to learn unix programming, shell
programming, make-file programming, m4, how unix processes work etc,
to be able to look in generated Makefiles and "configure" and see from
that what errors i was making in and
Learning too many things simultaneously, but i know now.
