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.
