I second that. Autoconf is the worse building method I have ever seen.

And I've already seen some pretty scary things, like the SymbianOS
build method with hundreds of perl scripts that call batch files,
which create makefiles, which call more perl scripts to create more
batch scripts, and so on recursively.
