Let's test it. If you could write a patch to replace our current configure script with something based on autoconf, then I'll be glad to try it out and see what I think. If there are any differences that I find annoying, then we can see which of those we can work around or get fixed in upstream autoconf. I'm definitely open to exploration in this area. > Now when you say you hate automake & libtool, then I'll wholeheartedly > agree with you. Hate is one emotion that I do my best to avoid. But I am quite glad to have found no compelling reason to use either automake or libtool so far in notmuch. :-) -Carl -------------- next part -------------- A non-text attachment was scrubbed...
