There's something about the word `tarballs' that make you want to avoid them altogether, let alone get involved in the disgusting process of rolling one. And, in the past, that was apparently the attitude of most developers, as witnessed by the strange ways distribution tar archives were created and unpacked. Automake largely automates this tedious process, in a sense providing you with the obliviousness you crave.
