I absolutely agree that what should be compiled should only be what is

Linux method of configuration for compilation and for the modules too.
But what I have read about imake vs. the GNU Autotools is that imake is
not very flexible in this regard.  Or am I dead wrong?  Perhaps we need
to add another level/layer of abstraction on top of imake?  I also read
that there where some other problems with imake because it used the
c-pre-processor, what has/have your experiences been?

David, how is the FAQ coming?  Do you want me to do another upload?

Linux style configuration for Xouvert would be very cool, but we are
going to do any transition of the build system slowly and carefully, so
that it never stops working.  Your question is a good one; unless
someone can tell us the problems of imake, why should we move away from
it when we have priorities like making our first release 4 weeks from
now? :-)



It's not true unless it makes you laugh, but you don't understand it until it makes you weep.
