For this one, I knew about that. However we have a bootstrap issue: how
to make the first Makefile from the corresponding Makefile.pamphlet
while noweb and document are made by this missing Makefile?

I think that in the long term we should have a ./configure shell script
that creates the initial Makefile and creates needed environment

Using or not GNU Autoconf and related programs (Automake, ...) remains
an open issue.
