It's probably worth saying this explicitly, since Peter may or may not be
aware of it: Emacs has nearly all of the features that one expects from an
IDE, including keyword completion, integrated build, jumping to build
errors, tag searching, debugger integration including stepping through
code, and so forth.  You can either use them or not as you choose, but the
facilities are present if you want them.  I suspect that's the most
commonly-used IDE for Autoconf-using projects.

Emacs of course also has an editing mode for Autoconf, although its
automatic indentation support and syntax highlighting aren't that great.
