I completely agree. The basic ./configure command should do what now the
./Configure script does. If you want fancy features, be prepared to
--give --fifty-thousand --command --line arguments. I don't much care how
many they are, I just want to have the options. For a distribution maker
that means sticking the parameters into a spec file for the package and
rebuilding from that point without having to worry about porting
distribution-specific patches to new code bases.

So I am not suggestinga complicated way to do simple things... All the new
users should note is the difference in spelling between ./Configure and
./configure - nothing more.

 UNIX is user friendly. It's just selective about who its friends are.
