Just typing makefile.am into Google returns a load of examples. My
understanding is that Makefile.am is turned in Makefile.in by
automake. The Makefile.in used by PLT Scheme is here:


Maybe that will help, but I think your question is more about
including Scheme source in a C++ project. You don't have to do any
compilation on the source code, and installation is just copying to
the correct directory (where correct is determined by how the code is
require'd) so your Make rules should be very simple.
