I thought somebody was working on it, so I stopped.  I am not a big fan of
our current make process, and I am avoiding it when possible.  If there is
no patch submitted today, I'll look at fixing this tomorrow first thing.

What do you mean it blows it by making a half-assed guess?  Could oyu be a
bit more specific

I think that autoconf is great when used for a simple program, but the
more complex the program, the more convoluted the autoconf stuff gets.  If
you can find a better way to configure this stuff, then I'm behind you.
