Description From 2006-01-20 16:09:08
It would be nice if cgen could create packages which do not contain the
generated source code files, but only the meta files (Makefile.am,
configure-related, etc) including a call to cgen to generate the source files
when the package is built. It would be even better if the list of source files
could be determined at build time instead of relying on a static list in the
makefile. Perhaps a secondary non-automake file could be used or included for
this purpose?

Currently, bindings package in CVS end up being massaged into this form by hand.

A new option to cgen (-no-sources) is in trunk. This will make a package which
is much closer to what we need for CVS.
