according to a automake webpage (http://directory.fsf.org/automake.html):
''Automake - Generates Makefile.in files
'Automake' automatically generates make files compliant with the GNU 
coding standards. It was inspired by the 4.4 BSD make and include files, 
but aims to be portable and to confrom to the GNU standards for Make 
file variables and targets.''

    EPO guidelines 1978: "If the contribution to the known art resides
    solely in a computer program then the subject matter is not
    patentable in whatever manner it may be presented in the claims."
