automake/autoconf can almost create them automatically.
(apt-get install autoproject seems promising although I've never tried it.)
But, usually making a makefile is as easy as :
thisproject: sourcecode1.o sourcecode2.o
... and providing sourcecode1.c etc. Then type make.

apt-get install automake autoconf
There's enough information there.

I don't have an idea.
Trying to develop on more than one platform from the beginning helps being
portable, but that degrades the rate of development a bit.

I did have a very hard time to gather all the information required for this
because the information seems quite scattered...
Another question will be :
how to make everything language-portable (i18n?).
It's a question I am currently still searching for the answer...
