This is my last post as well.

Please reread my messages... My opinion has been totally, 100% based
on actual, real-world experience with autoconf/configure. Nope,
I don't know the nitty-gritty details on how every line of code
works nor do I want to, nor do I require that knowledge to have
an opinion. Instead, I have had countless times when ./configure
has caused me more hassle and headache than a simple commented
"configuration" file would have. This is fact. I've mentioned this
several times. Either you haven't bothered reading what I've said,
in which case I certainly can't force you to, or you have 
chosen to bolster your argument by wrapping my arguments in lies
and falsehoods. Either way, it doesn't hold water. I would submit
that you don't have a clue what I've been saying, and the above
statements clearly show that.
