5 years later and I still hate autoconf and automake

They are evil, yes. However, if I have to choose between autotools and the massive recursive Makefile nightmare I have to deal with at work, I'll take autotools without a single regret.

srsly. our main build system has thousands of lines of Makefile crap across hundreds of included files. Oh yeah, and there's a bunch of tcl scripts that the Makefiles rely on.

Some days, I wonder why I've not gone on a homicidal rampage. Probably because none of the people responsible for this nightmare are still with the company...
