The only good reason I can supply to using Makefile as opposed to
makefile is that the auto tools, automake, produces Makefile, not
makefile. Most other unix projects that use the auto tools will
eventually produce Makefile and thats what people know to look for.
Theres nothing wrong with it and if you dont want to change it I wont
harp about it anymore.

In my experience, is much easier to make changes to than contains all the files you want compiled and a
few variables where you can set which libraries to link in, as opposed
to where you have to specify all of the rules as well. In my
project, which is of comparable size to Allegro, is 296
lines while is 925 lines. 

I get the feeling that I will have to come up with and prove
that is better. Although I hesitate to do this, becuase im not all that
great at the automake tools, I will make something that hopefully
someone can improve upon later. 

Basically you are doing automake's job yourself. I see that you are
using autoconf to generate configure, so why not use automake to
