Should we just select some subset of existing examples and add the

(my guesswould be automake with some factored-out bits, but I'm prepared to besurprised)But even then, leave the other builds/ entries unchanged, so thatpeople using cmake/scons/plain-make/whatever have easy examples towork from and/or places to add new examples. Automake sucks less thaneverything else I've tried, but not so much less that we don't want tomake life as easy as possible for people who disagree.
I really like the idea of
Ideally the contents of which could get dropped into any example directory and build it.
For after thanksgiving, of course!
