mk-configure - NetBSD's make to replace autoconf, 2009-03-10 00:00:00 #
I wanted to give a little press to by Aleksey Cheusov because I think it's an interesting project and because the auto tools are a regular source of heartache for developers and users. (you might know them as the standard ./configure && make && make install cycle) Having a BSD-based alternative to these tools is nice for someone making BSD software and pushing the use of NetBSD's flavor of make is also cool because it's very powerful and could do a lot of things (like the above project shows) that are currently achieved with many different and difficult to understand/learn tools. Make is magic-enough. :)
