Hello Reuben,

please don't top-post on this list, thank you.

That's actually a quite nice idea, and you are not the first person to
have this idea.

We already have autoscan to generate a stub file, but it's,
umm, rather not evolving rapidly, doesn't create files.
I think it would be a nice addition, to Automake or Autoconf, to have a
program that would generate some stub files.

The program could have options to generate recursive or non-recursive
setups, or some mixture (if that is easy to describe with options).

I would prefer that the program be in a non-compiled language, actually
perl would fit as several of the autotools programs use it already.

Would you be willing to work on this?  Please be aware that nontrivial
contributions to GNU software require copyright assignments before we
can look at your code or accept it.
