Automake coping files to build directory

I am using automake to generate Makefiles, using as a basis. This is usually more than sufficient for most of my programs, however for a new program, I need a configuration file (*.ini) to be copied from the source directory to the build directory as it is used by the complied program.

If I was directly editing the which is generated from the, I could add in a line with the standard 'cp' command to achieve what I want, but I was wondering if it is possible to add a line to the so it does it instead.

Help is much appreciated!
