Yup.  Well, sorta.  "SpeciaLib" is a library and a set of tools for
creating specializable libraries.  As such, these modified Makefiles would
exist in any library that uses SpeciaLib to construct itself (the tools do
things like generate headers and structures used in run-time
specialization).  I've thought of writing a tool that would conveniently
be called 'specialize' that would be a cross between libtoolize and
automake, creating's from's (or whatever I call
them), but that means a significant amount of work in properly
interpreting the

Any chance automake will move towards being more externally customizable?
