Writing cross-platform programs can be a pain on anyone's bottom. Autotools can help you with this, though. Unfortunately, it is difficult to find good tutorials on the subject. I hope this tutorial can change all that.
This tutorial isn't a comprehensive tutorial on the subject. Instead, I designed it to help you jump-start your learning of the subject. After this tutorial, you should be able to read other tutorials and documents easier.
