 3.3 Substitutions in Makefiles
 Each subdirectory in a distribution that contains something to be
 compiled or installed should come with a file `', from which
 `configure' will create a `Makefile' in that directory.  To create a
 `Makefile', `configure' performs a simple variable substitution,
 replacing occurrences of `@VARIABLE@' in `' with the value
 that `configure' has determined for that variable.  Variables that are
 substituted into output files in this way are called "output
 variables".  They are ordinary shell variables that are set in
 `configure'.  To make `configure' substitute a particular variable into
 the output files, the macro `AC_SUBST' must be called with that
 variable name as an argument.  Any occurrences of `@VARIABLE@' for
 other variables are left unchanged.   Setting Output Variables,
 for more information on creating output variables with `AC_SUBST'.
    A software package that uses a `configure' script should be
 distributed with a file `', but no `Makefile'; that way, the
 user has to properly configure the package for the local system before
 compiling it.
