Making GNU standards-compliant Makefiles

Automake the part of the GNU build system for producing standards-compliant Makefiles. Build requirements are entered in an intuitive format and then Automake works with Autoconf to produce a robust Makefile, simplifying the entire process for the developer.


Install the latest version of automake as follows:

guix install automake

Or install a particular version:

guix install automake@1.16.5

You can also install packages in augmented, pure or containerized environments for development or simply to try them out without polluting your user profile. See the guix shell documentation for more information.
