The acscripts library contains a set of helper scripts that can be used by package configure scripts. This library enables common functions to be used from one central location, rather than being duplicated across packages. This provides simplified system maintenance, because build functions are centralized, and smaller packages, because build functions are no longer in packages.
JavaAutotoolsExample is an example of a Java Swing program that uses GNU Gettext, Autoconf, Automake, Make, and Java JNI. JavaAutotoolsExample is intended to help Java developers and maintainers make their full-featured Java programs respect the standard "./configure && make && sudo make install" procedure for build and installation.
