I am continually astounded by self-righteousness in the tech world. There is so much all of us either don't know (to say nothing of what we don't know that we don't know) or have bunged up in our time, that we should be um.... temperate.... in what we say. We all have plenty to learn and this is not the best way to learn it. Besides...treat people with respect on the way up, they'll remember you on your way down......

 Second, if you think you can write your own "config script" that will be
 portable to even a small fraction of the systems that an autoconfiscated
 package is, then by all means, have at it.  Many people have made the
 same hysterical claims you have, and yet strangely enough, no one has
 actually _produced_ anything better.  Odd.

I havent subscribed to this list so I didn't receive this reply to a reply...

but, yeah, you're right...

I HAVE written something that works better than autoconf... in the real world... that requires only a installed C compiler... and is so easy it makes autoconf look like a project whose purpose is to harm open source development...

There... choke on that one, bitch :D
