It's not only the -lcrypt issue. What about the ability to configure your
software without having to edit some configuration file ? Something like:

	./configure --prefix=/usr --httpd-home=/home/httpd \

Wouldn't that be handy ? Instead of browsing through a config file and
setting yourself compiler flags, library paths - you could have everything
done for you by autoconf.
