there are lots of installation strategies, most common are: Imakefile, configure, SConstruct.
Imakefile is outdated and was used for X
SConstruct is a nice python implementation of configure
configure are the standard of art nowadays.
Configure depends on some files:
autogen.sh
configure.in
Makefile.am
Makefile.in

autogen.sh
from configure.in it creates a script named configure. The exactly syntax from configure.in you can take from tutorials but also from other projects.

configure
configure make some test, like compiling files with libraries or flags, linking packages, etc. it then creates from Makefile.am and Makefile.in a Makefile.

Normally you need just to create MAkefile.am and configure.in, the autogen.sh has normally 3 lines (automake, autoconf and someother normal script). Makefile.am is based normally on the Makefile of your configuration plus some key flags and conditions to adapt it to the target system. in configure.in is the most work to be done. There you must specify which autoconf version is needed, which libraries do you need and include flies, where to install (this can  be also made in Makefile.am) and show some info about the options chossen.
