[Pdns-users] creation of own backend / autotools configuration

I need to build a new backend for pdns to fulfill the current needs within
my network. Since I fear the pipe-backend could be a little bit slow when a
lot of requests are incoming (no caching feasible) I thought about writing
a native C++-plugin for pdns.
Luckily all other backends are available as open-source so I think I will be
able to learn fast and get first results without bothering you too
much ;-). But my current problem is I never used autotools (self written
shell scripts or qmake where all I needed until now) so far and am now
asking myself how to get started first off all.
I wrote a small dummy backend based on the randombackend from the
documentation. But how do I now include it into the building of pdns?
Optimally I could build it "alone" and just copy it into the lib-dir of the
installed pdns (compiler is the same), too. I looked into the
Makefile.*-files of the other backends and am completly lost.
Can someone direct me to some URL where the basic steps to get a pdns
compatible configuration are described?
