I hope this is suitable for the cross-post.

I'm currently using automake-1.5 and autoconf-2.53 in this situation.

I have a case where I need to produce a Makefile from a
(generated from a and other files.  As it happens, I need one
of these files to come before the but I *think* my patches
handle that case already.

One place I *am* seeing a problem is with config.status and the
automake-generated rule to generate the Makefile.

The instantiation template "documented" for Makefile by config.status is:

and if I do a "plain" config.status then Makefile is produced from foo
followed by (with appropriate substitutions).

However, if somebody incants "config.status --file=Makefile" then the
generated Makefile does not contain "foo".

Furthermore, the rules to generate Makefile look like:

 Makefile: ...
        CONFIG_FILES=@ $(SHELL) ./config.status

so again the generated Makefile only contains instead of foo and .

config.status clearly knows the template list for the files.  It looks like
if one specifies a target file with no template list that config.status
assumes the "simplest" case instead of using the "listed default" case.

Anybody have any solutions or thoughts?
