I am reading glibc code. I find the files Makefile and Makefile.in in
the top directory. Did the Makefile be created from Makefile.in? if
did, but the file Makefile.in is very simple. what are the tools by
used to create the file Makefile from Makefile.in?  If don't , what
purpose is the Makefile.in and why did release the file? Thanks very
much!
