Hey, I didn't intend to be mean about it at all.  I don't mind if people
recommend non-autotools solutions on this list (as long as they don't put
autotools down unreasonably).  All I'm saying is that I don't go out of
my way and think about these issues, too.  If you have a special problem
and can describe it, I may well look into it.  But not doing so for any
reason is not harsh.  It's just my choice.  Maybe someone else helps you
(or maybe someone else writes such an obviously wrong answer that I will
feel obliged to correct ;-).

At a very high level: files are pretty much just Makefiles
with extra syntactic sugar.  So you can write plain make rules.  Do
whatever you did with make before you used Automake.
