Autotools Mythbuster is a no-nonsense guide to Autotools, written with the idea of providing a full, integrated view of the tools in the GNU build chain: autoconf, automake, libtool, pkg-config, and so on.
Instead of providing a full detailing of the workings of the components, which most consumers are not interested on, this guide focuses on building useful, solid and distribution-friendly packages, that developers can submit to distributions without having to jump through hoops to get them accepted.
Autotools Mythbuster is available as an eBook for those who want to read or reference it online. Profits from its sales are used to pay for hosting and domain name registration.
