    shied away by the complexity of
    all these tools interacting with each other.

I have also heard this from many people, BTW.  (And I totally agree that
telling them about autoreconf is the way to go.)

    reuse the same plan for the introduction of the Automake manual.

Sounds excellent.  A tutorial intro to auto* would be very helpful, I

    Hello is probably already too complicated for a tutorial, 

For an auto* tutorial, I think I agree.  In the
example-for-GNU-maintainers approach, I see hello as showing basic usage
of gettext, gnulib, auto*, Texinfo, etc.  And for purposes of an auto*
tutorial to non-GNU programmers, I doubt you want to get into gettext,
let alone gnulib or texinfo.

So having a separate amhello example seems sensible to me.
