Indeed there is, and that's just what I had in mind. The "script" is
autogen.sh, which as you can see invokes autoconf and automake. The
distribution is created by:
$ ./autogen.sh # invokes ./configure
$ make dist
We can add things to "make dist". For instance, it already builds the
documentation as HTML from SGML sources. Adding a little sed(1) magic
shouldn't be too hard, as long as the .rc file can be processed by the
likes of sed or perl.
