license in generated files

This is really split between autoconf and automake, but I'll just write
here for now.

1) The license statement added in Makefile.in starts:
# This Makefile.in is free software; the Free Software Foundation

But then it is copied into the Makefile too, so it's no longer the
"Makefile.in".  How about "This file", or "This Makefile" -- seems
sufficiently generic to me to cover the Makefile.in too?  Or I suppose
autoconf could add yet another statement "This Makefile is free ...".

2) [More important.]  How about having autoheader add the same statement
   to config.in?
