I have been using automake/autoconf/libtool for the development
of a large linked in device driver and API.  It has been invaluable
for handling the portability issues which exist between 32/64 bit,
SPARC/i386 (endianness) and Linux/Solaris (with/without STREAMS).

Since this involves a very tight binding using binaries it is 
necessary for some of the erlang side to be modified for each 
environment as well as the C code.  Usng these tools you just do 
./configure and it all happens as it should.  Quoting Hanibal Smith;
"I like it when a plan comes together".
