That seems to be correct.  I hope that doing so doesn't break anything.
(Thinking about the rules in `Makerules.am' that deal with those files.)
But you should have noticed if it had...

I decided to add the `.srv' and `.cli' files to `EXTRA_DIST' instead.

OK gang, I've gotten pretty far but now I'm a little confused. I had to include linux/src/drivers/scsi/FlashPoint.c because BusLogic.c includes. But now it is attempting to build FlashPoint.c and failing.


But afaict, in a normal (i.e. not from make dist's tarball), FlashPoint.c is not build.


Also, I meant to mention.  I suppose one way around this may be to add
FlashPoint.c to EXTRA_DIST instead of inside of a
dist_liblinux_a_SOURCES target?

Correct.  This and similar other files should also be added to
`EXTRA_DIST' instead of some `*_SOURCES'.

I am attaching a diff of what I have done so far.

Barry, thanks for the patch, it was of great help!

I integrated it into a local tree here at home, changed and added some
bits, began testing it to eventually commit it into the cvs repository,
but before I was able to finish the testing, I hit another Automake bug,
I believe, which I then reported to <bug-automake@gnu.org>.  So we now
have to wait until that is resolved.



Great thanks. It's funny, I originally had all the .cli and .srv files in EXTRA_DIST.. Doh.

So, should I pretty much stop working on this at this point?

Thanks again!
