There is a simpler solution.
Just don't touch the actual makefiles.
If somebody doesn't have automake, he can use the
actual makefiles, if somebody has automake, he can use
./configure to create a set of makefiles and compile
from these makefiles.

P.S.: Goran, if you want, there is a third technology
that is used in gnome and not in AbiWord: gettext. I
(personally) will be very grateful with a working
patch to change the actual system with gettext (that
works in windows...).
