hey cool, that's exactly what I was looking for.  I didn't even think of
using it before because the name led me to believe that it enabled other
maintainer stuff that was by default disabled :)

okay, I have one more question, then i promise to leave you all be...

my lab partner and i have dove rather deeply into the pool of metaprogramming,
and part of our project is automatically generated by a different part of
the project.  I've already been able to wiggle my previous makefile rules 
for these automatically generated .[c,h] files into
compilation process, but now I'm having trouble getting rid of them.  I
want during 'make distclean' to get rid of a specific set of files that
I have previously defined elsewhere to ${AUTOGEN}.  I've tried the approach
that seemed to make the most sense from the web docs (nodist_XXX) but
alas, it doesn't seem to work.  so i have something like this:

PROGS:=p1 p2
AUTOGEN:=ag1.c ag1.h ag2.c ag2.h

p1_SOURCES=${AUTOGEN} p1-main.c foo.c blah.c
p2_SOURCES=${AUTOGEN} p2-main.c bar.c blah.c


but when i do automake, I get the following error: invalid unused variable name: `nodist_p1_SOURCES'

is there something I'm doing wrong?  Is there a better way to do what I'd
like to do?  also, I saw that there was a 'hook' option for some  targets,
so I tried distclean-hook to see if I could just sneak it in that way,
but again, alas...
