I am trying to add already existing library below to dash source code : Jerasure

I have included all the source and header files in a directory 'jerasure' inside 'src'.

In the Makefile.am , I have added the below lines:

libbitcoin_server_a_SOURCES = \
  jerasure/cauchy.c \                                                          
  jerasure/galois.c \                                                          
  jerasure/liberation.c \                                                      
  jerasure/reed_sol.c \                                                        
  jerasure/timing.c \                                                          
  jerasure/encoder.c \                                                         
  jerasure/decoder.c \                                                         
  jerasure/jerasure.c \                                                        

Headers are added as below:

 jerasure/cauchy.h \                                                          
 jerasure/galois.h \                                                          
 jerasure/liberation.h \                                                      
 jerasure/reed_sol.h \                                                         
 jerasure/timing.h \                                                                                                                   

I am getting the error :

src/Makefile.am:324: warning: variable 'jerasure_libbitcoin_jerasure_a_SOURCES' is defined but no program or src/Makefile.am:324: library has 'jerasure_libbitcoin_jerasure_a' as canonical name (possible typo)

I have used Makefiles before, and I have been trying from sometime to get accustomed to Makefile.am idea, but not able to figure out how to get this to work.

I am able to compile this on my macOS, but not on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Please help me understand what should I do in order to get this library to be used.

If there is a way to compile this as a library, that would help too. But right now

I want to import the Source or Header files in to already existing CPP files and be able to use the functionality.
