It wasn't quite like that.  We tried the GNU way, ie, use automake,
libtool and support standard UNIX make.

We dropped automake and libtool, and require GNU make.  But we do
support and adhere to most other sensible GNU coding and project
standards, such as --srcdir builds.

Yep, that part's quite correct :-)
