You'd rather make people download and install something they may not
need instead of copy-n-pasting the Makefile into to your email.  Nice
way to be helpful there when asking for help!

Note that you haven't actually provided enough information to
reproduce the situation even if I did have a copy of automake 1.10.1
on hand: what specific package was this with?  What arguments were
passed to 'configure'?  What directory layout?  What arguments passed
to make?  Are we supposed to just *guess*??!

Umm, what?  If you remove the 'Makefile' target, then why would make
care that the Makefile.in file is out of date?  Are you including it
as a target on the command line?  For that matter, how are you
invoking make in your tests?  Please describe the behavior when you do
*not* edit the Makefile to remove the 'Makefile' target.

Could you please show the actual command output and error messages and
makefile contents?
