But it can generate makefiles. If it trusted the user to have the
compiler, etc. in the PATH, instead of hardcoding their paths, it
could be used like the autotools.

Of course. I still remember the fist time I compiled Perl on a Unix
system, back in 1991. It used a tool similar to autoconf, and it did
make funny comments when it was unable to find some libraries or it
disliked your platform choice or the like. Very LarryWallesque.
