Where can GNUmakefile skeletons (for applications, tools, etc) be found?

Good question/suggestion.  We don't have an official (or unofficial, for
what matters) set of GNUmakefile skeletons.

I see two main uses for GNUmakefile skeletons - one as starting points. In that case, probably minimal GNUmakefiles are best.

The Programming Tutorial has some basic starting points for makefiles. I don't think however that an entire list of variables should be part of the Tutorial.

So make/Examples seems a good place, or one of your famous mini-tutorials....


Another use is as a commented reference of which variables you can use in
each type of GNUmakefile.  Presumably having example GNUmakefiles
containing a list of all variables which can be defined with comments, and
examples of how to define them, would be a useful reference.

Any comments ?

Shall we set up such sets ?  What about a new core/make/Examples/
subdirectory on CVS ?
