I should also mention that the "Battle for Wesnoth" project does not  
seem to use automake the same way we do, so that won't help us much.  
They use it as a template for Makefile rules, but the targets of the  
rules are not listed explicitly.

Put another way, I don't think you would get a proper tarball if you  
ran 'make dist' in the root.

(They also have rule files for SCons and CMake alongside Makefile.am.)

I also looked at the Git source tree (since they use AsciiDoc as  
well), but they only use plain Makefiles.
