By the way, I would find it more interesting to see some
automake-replacement that allows GNU-make extensions and
compiles them down to standard make as far as possible...

On the other hand some automake-restrictions are really not needed
anymore. (variables with "." and "/" would be nice - along with
it would easily allow a scheme to define generated compile-flags).

cheers, Guido
