Can you please tell me what are the differences between Makefile.am and Makefile.in? What about acinclude.m4 and aclocal.m4 files? I am trying to compile a cpp project on Linux.

Do you have root permissions on this machine? What distro of Linux? Ubuntu? Redhat? Suse? – Ross Rogers Jan 15 '10 at 0:58
  • Makefile.am is the automake source file.
  • Makefile.in is generated by automake from Makefile.am
