So? Who said it's got to be standard? It's got to (1) work and
(2) be easy.

Last time I checked, Perl still used Larry's old home-brewed configure
script. Should we knock Perl because it doesn't use autoconf? If we
use autoconf, do we have to deal with FSF's license?

This debate is more suited for the 2.0 discussion more than anything
else... ain't no way we're gonna change this around for 1.3.
