In reply to Michel Selten (michel@success.demon.nl):

I got the bootstrap script from the following page:
(It talks about why its named bootstrap, as well as alludes to some
problems with autogen.sh scripts out there) 

As far as configure.ac vs configure.in, configure.ac is the new name for it.
And I think it makes it easier to talk about files.  (You can now say
automake produces .in's from .am's and not have to explain that
configure.in is something different)

I'm by no means an expert just going with what I've found out there and
seemed to be the clearest/easiest to work with.
