[Kst] creating a new datasource reader

I have been following the template in Appendix C of the KST handbook to
create a datasource reader for netCDF files.  I have finished writing
the code for the .h and .cpp files and have also made the .desktop file.
Following the instructions in Appendix C, I edited 
kst/datasources/Makefile.am so that SUBDIRS contains the name of this new
subdirectory, and I created a Makefile.am file in this new subdirectory.
However, when I try to compile, I get the following error message:

>> ./configure
>> cd kst-1.0.0/kst/kst/datasources/netcdf
>> make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong, and what this error message means?

Thank you kindly,
Kim Scott
