Indeed, there is one really nearby ;-)

$ apt-cache policy autobook
  Mögliche Pakete:1.4.3-unofficial-1
     1.4.3-unofficial-1 0
        500 http://ftp.tu-graz.ac.at stable/main Packages
        990 http://ftp.de.debian.org testing/main Packages
        500 http://ftp.de.debian.org unstable/main Packages

This is the version I used recently to get involved with
autotools, and most of the things worked quite well. The
package contains both HTML and PDF versions.

If you have specific problems with any of the examples in the book,
feel free to ask.

Hi Andreas

Thanks for the pointer. I cursory look around told me that it is uptodate. Debian's maintainers are awesome.
