To be precise, it’s the automake source file for such a shell script,
but the essence is correct :-)
(especially since I actually don’t use the features automake provides)

Yes, that’s what I meant.

I can’t tell you off-hand, but you can find most of such configuration
by starting with a specialized script like the configured one and then
only installing the extension and the settings you need. Many parts of
the configuration are in plain text. That’s how I found those settings
here :-)

Though not everything is as convenient as the parts I configure
