As the Savannah tracker just told us verbosely on bug-hurd,
<http://savannah.gnu.org/task/?5956> has been dealt with by now: GNU Mach
now uses GNU Automake as its build system.  There are still some rough
edges, but everything should work.  See the source files for details, if
you like, starting with `configure.ac' and `Makefile.am'.

From a user's perspective not much should have changed, only `make
no_deps=t install-headers' is simply called `make install-data' now and
`make kernel[.stripped][.gz]' is called `make gnumach[.stripped][.gz]'
now and will in fact output a `gnumach[.stripped][.gz]' file instead of a
`kernel[.stripped][.gz]' one.  The same will happen when simply running
`make' , of course.  Another change is that ``--prefix='' is no longer
enabled by default, you now have to explicitly specify that if needed.

There is only one `configure' script now, so `./configure --help | less'
will tell you about everything you can configure.  All options are called
the same as they were before.

The documentation needs to be updated a bit, see
<http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?18010> if you generously would
like to work on that.

Please report all other inconsistencies to <bug-hurd@gnu.org>.
