Gnome uses a standard autoconf/automake/libtool setup. The only
"special" things are the various predefined autoconf macros:
AM_ACLOCAL_INCLUDE(macros) # need this to get the other gnome macros
The info files that come with the autoconf/automake/libtool packages
should start you off. Another good reference is (as someone already
`autogen.sh' is only a convenience script, and needs little setup. You
just need to edit PKG_NAME, and, if you want to, list some files in the
simple-minded "I'm building in the correct tree" check.
