create_makefiles - Recreates all Makefiles beneath a directory
create_makefiles recreates all Makefiles in dir and its (recursed) subdirectories from the corresponding Makefile.am templates.
This script must be run from the toplevel directory (the one containing configure). This script saves time compared to re-running configure
If the source directory is different from the build directory (see the environment variables below), it will be assumed that each
Makefile.am and Makefile.in belongs beneath the source directory and that each Makefile belongs beneath the build directory.
This utility is part of the KDE Software Development Kit.
One of the following variables (but not both) should be set if the source directory is different from the build directory. If the build
directory is simply a subdirectory of the source directory, the simpler variable OBJ_SUBDIR should be used.
Indicates that the build directory is in the given subdirectory of the source directory. For instance, if the source directory is
kdesdk and the build directory is kdesdk/obj-i386-linux, then OBJ_SUBDIR should be set to obj-i386-linux.
A sed expression that is used to transform the source directory into the build directory. For instance, if the source directory is
kdesdk/obj-i386-linux, then OBJ_REPLACEMENT should be set to s#kdesdk#kdesdk-obj#.

xmkmf - create a Makefile from an Imakefile
xmkmf [-a] [topdir[curdir]]
The xmkmf command is the normal way to create a Makefile from an Imakefile shipped with third-party software.
When invoked with no arguments in a directory containing an Imakefile, the imake program is run with arguments appropriate for your system
(configured into xmkmf when X was built) and generates a Makefile.
When invoked with the -a option, xmkmf builds the Makefile in the current directory, and then automatically executes "make Makefiles" (in
case there are subdirectories), "make includes", and "make depend" for you. This is the normal way to configure software that is outside
the X Consortium build tree.
If working inside the X Consortium build tree (unlikely unless you are an X developer, and even then this option is never really used), the
topdir argument should be specified as the relative pathname from the current directory to the top of the build tree. Optionally, curdir
may be specified as a relative pathname from the top of the build tree to the current directory. It is necessary to supply curdir if the
current directory has subdirectories, or the Makefile will not be able to build the subdirectories. If a topdir is given, xmkmf assumes
nothing is installed on your system and looks for files in the build tree instead of using the installed versions.
