If the project uses not only autoconf but also automake then it is good

This is something I should consider for my own projects, but some of the projects I've got are imports from other projects. For example, I've imported both the original ssh and openssh source trees in order to make LDAP an option for locating RSA keys. In cases like that, I'm just trying to make a small change to an isolated part of the system. Dramatically changing their build system for them would be greatly beyond the scope of the change I was trying to make and would pretty much guarantee my patch would be refused. :)

Personally, I've never used automake. It makes me think of imake, which scares me. :)
