On closer examination, the problem is that you've been reading only 
autoconf documenation to find out how to prepare input used by both 
autoconf and automake.  The correct syntax is actually in the automake 
manual:

AC_CONFIG_FILES(
  [Makefile]
  [src/Makefile:src/Makefile.in:append/append.mk]
)

The trick being that for automake to grok multi-part input, you have to 
name not just the final output file, but also the intermediate (the one 
automake is to build from src/Makefile.am).

Hi,


Prior to writing the report, I tried it with:


AC_INIT([amhello], [1.0], [bug-automake@HIDDEN])
AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([-Wall -Werror foreign])
AC_PROG_CC
AC_CONFIG_HEADERS([config.h])
AC_CONFIG_FILES(
[Makefile]
[src/Makefile:append/append.mk]
)
AC_OUTPUT

I have tried it once again and still receive the same error.

Best Regards,
Sean

Your bug report might be more convincing if you hadn't got that syntax
wrong.  Compare your example with the documentation example you found,
and particularly note where the []s and are:

> AC_CONFIG_FILES([Makefile:boiler/top.mk:boiler/bot.mk]
> [lib/Makefile:boiler/lib.mk])

Wouldn't you agree that your example should have been

AC_CONFIG_FILES(
   [Makefile]
   [src/Makefile:append/append.mk]
)

?

Tested versions:  automake-1.13 and automake-1.15

How to reproduce:
Extract /usr/share/doc/automake-1.13.4/amhello-1.0.tar.gz
Create directory amhello-1.0/append
Create file amhello-1.0/append/append.mk
Add any text to amhello-1.0/append/append.mk
Edit configure.ac to include append/append.mk in AC_CONFIG_FILES as follows=
:

AC_CONFIG_FILES([
 Makefile
 src/Makefile:append/append.mk
])

Documentation:
AC_CONFIG_FILES=20
You can override an input file name by appending to file a colon-separated =
list of
input files. Examples:
AC_CONFIG_FILES([Makefile:boiler/top.mk:boiler/bot.mk]
[lib/Makefile:boiler/lib.mk])
Doing this allows you to keep your file names acceptable to DOS variants, o=
r to
prepend and/or append boilerplate to the file.

Best Regards,
Sean
