It depends on your needs I guess. I find automake useless for anything
that is not trivial. The day I replaced the dpkg buildsystem with a
simple nice Makefile system that no longer used automake was an
extremely good day.

I am hoping that a-a-p (http://www.a-a-p.org/) will turn out to be
a good replacement for autoconf/automake/libtool and friends.
