Currently I'm looking at the build process as used for many GNU programs. A
couple of languages are involved in the overall process, starting with the bash
(or other shell) grammar, automake, configure, m4, make etc.

Even if all these tools are more or less well described, I would like to have
more precise grammars for all these languages. Any pointers?

[There's most of a BNF grammar for bash in its man page. Other than that,
I doubt there's formal grammars for any of them. -John]
