This has never been a consideration in my mind when converting things
from old-school Emacs build-style to autoconf. There's probably tons of
stuff that falls into the above category. I have never considered the
speed of configure an issue. Why is MS Windows any different to eg AIX,
unixware, or any of the other platforms that almost no-one uses but
configure.ac handles? I don't know how many people will end up using
configure on MS Windows, but if it is > 1 it probably still beats AIX...
