Quite.  If Zile and its dependancies weren't using autoconf, it would
have probably been easier to build, and I'd be using it now to write
this email.  As it is, I'm not, and I've given up trying to build it.

(For the autoconf being POSIX and pkg-config not argument, I've used
UNIXes where autoconf doesn't work [and this ends up meaning you don't
have the energy to get it going at all], and pkg-config should work on
any POSIX system just like Lua does :)
