Are you sure there is no configure script?  configure.in?  Any other .in 
files?  What happens is that the .in file is used by the autoconf set of 
of tools to produce the required files.  So Makefile.in will be used to 
generate Makefile, this usually happens when you run ./configure, which 
is why I find it really peculiar that there is no configure script.

Actually, it's probably assumed that you know the above, but I suspect 
somebody forgot to include the configure script, or as you say, a hint 
in the docs :).
