It's a shell script, meant for execution. Thus, the .sh extension. Many
projects use "autogen.sh", but the Apache projects don't follow that
tradition. buildconf(.sh) is the name/term we use.

The .sh extension clues in various apps that the thing is a script. Emacs
recognizes it, file managers can recognize it, etc.

And yes, the problem is due to "done half-way"
