Raggin' on auto*
Nothing against anyone who doesn't like the autoconf/automake system, but this article seems to be nothing more than a mindless rant. Many of the "issues" mentioned are simple not an issue at all (using a pager?!?! oh no, anything but that!). I would expect that an article that is so bold as to hail the end of the auto* system would at least give some subtantial reasons why the technology is inedequate.
