12.2 Removing ‘--foreign

Now that I have the bulk of the project in place, I want it to adhere to the GNU standard layout. By removing the ‘--foreign’ option from the call to automake in the bootstrap file, automake is able to warn me about missing, or in some cases(23), malformed files, as follows:

 
$ ./bootstrap
+ aclocal -I config
+ libtoolize --force --copy
Putting files in AC_CONFIG_AUX_DIR, config.
+ autoheader
+ automake --add-missing --copy
automake: Makefile.am: required file ./NEWS not found
automake: Makefile.am: required file ./README not found
automake: Makefile.am: required file ./AUTHORS not found
automake: Makefile.am: required file ./THANKS not found
+ autoconf

The GNU standards book(24) describes the contents of these files in more detail. Alternatively, take a look at a few other GNU packages from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu.
