5. Scanning `configure.in'

Automake scans the package's `configure.in' to determine certain information about the package. Some autoconf macros are required and some variables must be defined in `configure.in'. Automake will also use information from `configure.in' to further tailor its output.

Automake also supplies some Autoconf macros to make the maintenance easier. These macros can automatically be put into your `aclocal.m4' using the aclocal program.
