I am working with the GEBC source and updating some of the autoconf/automake

automake --add-missing

after autoconf to generate the missing ./compile file. I'd like to simply move
the --add-missing option into the file (or similar) to avoid
having the separate call to automake. Current the only automake call in is:


Where can I add the option so that autoconf generates any of the missing
files needed? The automake documentation describes AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR as being
able to specify the default directory for the common files as described:

But I'm still confused on whether and what I need to add to make this
happen? (I'm in no way an autotools expert). Anybody see an easy fix here?

The upstream itself should do this and add the files to repository. However what
we usually do is;

autoreconf -fi

which is will run autoconf and add the missing files in one call.
