*nod*. I agree.
I get particularly upset when I download software and the build system
doesn't work for some (usually minor) reason. make-based projects are
quick hacks for a fix (for a great deal of people). its very unlikely i
understand how to hack the current build system of the week.

wasn't the original impetus that the new UNIX developer doesn't have to
learn make/autoconf? so instead they just learn a different build
systems software? I dont follow the logic there...

Just my humble $0.02.
