missing makefile and configure


Hi all,

I found a software application, with Readme written in foreign language...
Well, ok, so I cant find any configure or makefile in the folder...
But there are configure.in, makefile.im, and autogen.sh , is it possible to generate configure or makefile from these files? how to?

Thanks...

usually just run the autogen script in the directory:

Code:
./autogen.sh
the autogen.sh script might run configure when it's done (sometimes it doesn't).
