Subject Re: Configuration...

At ApacheCon one night, a group of us were sitting around, and
it became clear that there was a clear and consistant dislike
(OK, hatred) for libtool. If we can define the absolute *core*
of what we need for libtool, we should roll our own.

And I've always been of the mind that once we reach beta,
I'd like to implement a Configure wrapper for configure :)
