I have no experience with automake at all and devnag.c is assumed to be
just compiled manually without problems. Some complications may arise with
the latest version which is now only on CVS. It needs case insensitive
string compare. Thi is the comment:

 Notes for compilation:
 Some C libraries do not contain strcasecmp but contain either stricmp
 or strcmpi (or both) with the same syntax. If it is the case of your
 compiler, use -DHAS_STRCMPI or -DHAS_STRICMP. GCC/EMX for OS/2
 requires -DHAS_STRICMP, gcc 3.3.3 in Linux as well as gcc 2.95.2
 from mingw (Windows) know strcasecmp.

This is the relevant code:
#define strcasecmp(s1,s2) strcmpi(s1,s2)
#define strcasecmp(s1,s2) stricmp(s1,s2)

Maybe you can advice us how to reorganize the code so that those, who do
not have automake, can easily compile it manually, and those with automake
can compile it automagically. We could modify the code before version 2.14
is released to CTAN.
