What are your requirements for this configuation file?

Something that deals with "classic" Unix config files (ie, along the lines of /etc/rc.conf and the like), with #-style comments and simple key-value assignment should only take a few hours to whip up, if you can't use GLib or other GPL'ed code for your circumstances.

If you need something fancier, consider lex and yacc (or flex & bison), but XML property lists are another alternative that might be more flexible.
