I apologize for my poor description of the issue.
To start of with I have a file, which includes the build time
macro definitions,
B_REFSW_OS  = linuxuser
BCHP_CHIP  = 7429

which are used in my source file to make switches,see below code snippet

if (NEXUS_PLATFORM  == 97428) {

I am trying to include this inc file in the automake file so that the build
variables are available for the sources at the compile time.
This is an existing inc file which is used in the normal makefile, as I am
porting this component to autotools I needed to do the same.

I tried this in my Makefile,am


this is not working and I am getting compile time errors, like
 NEXUS_PLATFORM undefined, because there is check in the source before
using it like

can I use the existing inc file as is ? or do I need to port this as to
suit for autotools environment.
