        Actually i dislike automake for the loads of crap it burdens
 the compilation process with.

        I wrote the build system with the "Recursive Make Considered
 Harmful" paradigm and implementation in mind, for my another project,
 and it decreased the build/rebuild time dramatically.

        However it does not solve the portability problems yet,
 of course, and i plan to solve this, most probably with autoconf.
 This is not high on my priority list though.
