Yes. Just to make things clear, I like autoconf very much and heavily
recommend its use. I would also recommend automake if it could generate
different styles of Makefiles, but I do not, since it only does
recursive Makefile (and very complex ones at that, they take a
relatively long time to parse).

Maybe take a look at my in-progress project XPLC for an example of
manageable non-recursive makefiles: http://xplc.sourceforge.net/
