Binary package “automake1.4” in ubuntu lucid

A tool for generating GNU Standards-compliant Makefiles

 Automake is a tool for automatically generating `Makefile.in's from
 files called `Makefile.am'.
 .
 The goal of Automake is to remove the burden of Makefile maintenance
 from the back of the individual GNU maintainer (and put it on the back
 of the Automake maintainer).
 .
 The `Makefile.am' is basically a series of `make' macro definitions
 (with rules being thrown in occasionally). The generated
 `Makefile.in's are compliant with the GNU Makefile standards.
 .
 This version of automake is several years out of date and is only
 provided for compatibility will older software. Please do not use it
 for new projects.
