A problem about autoconf and automake

I want to use autoconf and automake for my program.
And my program has some config files, so when installing the program with make, these config files must be copied to somewhere.
Does automake has some mechanisms to do this?
Or I have to write some shell commands to do this by myself?

Yes, autotools handles installation of just about anything. Read up on EXTRA_DIST by clicking that link or typing 'info automake dist' in a console if you have the automake info pages installed.

Here's a one of the many free tutorials available on the autotools.
