Q: binutils build process

Could someone please take the time to explain a couple of things?

I wish to add a new application in ./binutils/.  So I altered
Makefile.am and ran automake (v1.4a).  However the resulting Makefile.in
is vastly different from the CVS version and, post-configure, doesn't
work.  I tried './configure --enable-maintainer-mode' and it again
fails, but differently.

Do I need a different automake?

Also, dependencies.  Am I correct in assuming the process is:

automake
configure
make dep dep-i dep-am



What's the magic here?

Thanks.
