 \section{Autotools references}
+\begin{frame}{Existing code}
+  \begin{itemize}
+  \item Lots of open-source projects are using the {\em autotools}
+  \item They provide a lot of examples on how to configure and build
+    things using the {\em autotools}
+  \item However, make sure to have a critical eye when reading
+    existing {\em autotools} code
+    \begin{itemize}
+    \item For a lot of developers, the build system part is not their
+      primary knowledge and interest
+    \item Lots of projects use deprecated constructs or truely
+      horrible solutions
+    \item Don't copy/paste without thinking!
+    \end{itemize}
