That's how I ended up doing it.  (c:  Browsing through the's
in other projects can be very illuminating.  Of course, if you don't
mind waiting a few months, I have a book on GNOME coming out sometime in
early to mid 2000 with a nice, juicy chapter on autoconf, automake,
libtool, and all that.  (In fact, I'll probably throw this particular
