Using GNU autotools properly
 
Hi I find this a very confusing process, but correct me if I am wrong:

1. autoscan -> configure.in
2. write makefile.am (by hand?)
3. automake -> makefile.in
4. autoconf -> configure

The bit I am confused about is generating makefile.in, looking at the documentation only makes it worse. Can I write makefile.in directly?

Also why would I need configure.h, and how is that created? Autoheader?

Please end my confusion!
