Building Applications with only Makefile.in
I am little confused about a particular project that I would like to build. It is a NPAPI example code for a plugin that I am developing for firefox. The build directory only has Makefile.in. What I do not understand is how I am supposed to build with only a Makefile.in. I thought a configure.ac and Makefile.in were necessary to run autoconf to generate the configure script right before the make.
Can anyone shed some light on this matter? How else should I approach this, I have only just recently understood the autoconf and automake tools as part of the GNU Build system. Thanks.
