    I'm actually with Richard on this one.  I think the need to install,
    update, and use any additional commands before "./configure; make" is
    a nuisance whose justification is questionable at best.  It's just
    that I gave up on talking people into catering to us dinosaurs whose
    paradise was lost, and Richard is still trying, because he's a better
    man than I am.

It ought to be a simple job for someone who is fully familiar with the
current build mechanism.  The hardest part is to change the name of
the automatically-generated configuration file, because that change
may need to be made in a few places.  Once that's done, I'd expect the
new configure file to be less than 20 lines.
