GNU Autotools is a build system that helps you distribute your code in a predictable and reliable way.
Build systems offer many benefits, including:
- Standard and automate-able build process
- hooks into packaging systems (RPM, DEB, Slackbuilds, Flatpak, Snap, and so on)
- version reporting
- build for various OSes
- you get lots of code to handle every possible corner case, for free
- with a single configuration, you can build your project as the developer, build it for packagers, and enable users to build it for themselves
