8. Rebuilding Makefiles

Automake generates rules to automatically rebuild `Makefile's, `configure', and other derived files like `Makefile.in'.

If you are using AM_MAINTAINER_MODE in `configure.in', then these automatic rebuilding rules are only enabled in maintainer mode.

Sometimes you need to run aclocal with an argument like -I to tell it where to find `.m4' files. Since sometimes make will automatically run aclocal, you need a way to specify these arguments. You can do this by defining ACLOCAL_AMFLAGS; this holds arguments which are passed verbatim to aclocal. This variable is only useful in the top-level `Makefile.am'.
