'RPSL' (Rapid Prototyping Shared Library) is a set of bash scripts and utility files that coordinate the GNU autotools (automake, autoconf, libtool) and pkg-config for C/C++ build automation. The scripts and procedures define a system for building and linking libraries that supports individual or small group development. A single command (rpslSyncBuild) scans for source in a standardized directory structure, writes Makefile.am's and Configure.ac, and results in an autotools tree ready for the usual "configure, make, make install" build steps.
