On debian testing/unstable-mixed, to test out your chapter 2 I decided
to use a
single source-file ECS project written in C++. When I ran ./configure,
following occurred:
checking for stdbool.h that conforms to C99... yes
checking for _Bool... yes
checking whether time.h and sys/time.h may both be included... yes
checking for gettimeofday... yes
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating config.h
config.status: error: cannot find input file: config.h.in

After resovling this by running autoheader, I ran it again and found out
that it
never created a Makefile for me, either when the .in file was named
or Makefile.in. (When removing everything in the diretory except for the
file, and starting over adding a makefile.in, this problem went away)
