I personally would like to see this committed.  If not now sometime in the
near future.  (1 or two releases)  I think it would cause less confusion
to the new developers and its an elegant solution.
I kind of like having the older build system to fall back on incase there 
is some wackyness that the autoconf stuff just won't work on a given machine.
I think it makes the code workable on a wider variety of machines.
