Autotools Bootstrapper

Autotools Bootstrapper scans a package's and (or .ac) and creates a customized bourne shell script which can create the configure script with a single command. The resulting bootstrap script can also be used to clean all autogenerated files from a project's directory tree, which is useful for importing into a CVS server. This tool is especially useful for developers who are not familiar with the use of Autoconf, automake, and libtool.

    Depreciated in favour of autoreconf
    The developer himself has written this on sf:
    "Well after a review of the bootstrapper by the Automake and Autoconf development team, I was informed that the use of the bootstrap script is depreciated in favor of autoreconf. So I'm pretty much done developing this project. I hope to soon contribute to autoconf in order to make sure that all of the bootstrapper's useful functionality will be incorporated into autoconf."
