Thanks for replying, I know it is just "if" for *automake*, but I want to use the *GNU make* conditional (ifdef in this case; other examples are ifeq, ifneq, ifndef) in rules that will wind up in the resulting Makefile, to be analyzed and executed by GNU make.

Does automake disallow using GNU make conditionals in rules?
