Automake Help

I have a simple set of scripts that I would like to package using Automake. The only real dependencies are expect, sh, and loopaes. After that I only need to copy some scripts into different directories and add aliases to the /etc/rc.* directories. I've never used automake and the tutorials/man pages seem cryptic to me so any help is greatly appreciated. I have the scripts listed below as well as the directories they go to:

/etc/rc.(35)/S10_bb_sys (alias of bb_sys)
/etc/rc.(016)/K90_bb_sys (alias of bb_sys)

Just from spending a couple seconds at the GNU Automake page, I'm understanding it as thus: GNU Automake requires GNU Autoconf, and building GNU Autoconf files requires using GNU M4.


Are you just looking to write a basic Makefile, perhaps?
