You have some good points. I hate the twisty maze of ifdefs. I
believe the unix/open source community learned why they need autoconf.
I have another problem with autoconf, however. A number of the tools
used are not widely used and tend to be unfamiliar, such as M4. I
wish there were a nicer alternative.
