Yes, when I said that I hadn't use "configure" I meant
"autotools" (though I didn't know it :) I think almost
every project I download and build from scratch uses
configure .. the last time I looked at the autotools was
a few years ago now, maybe its time for a re-look ..
my libraries are getting big enough to warrant it I
Hadn't seen autogen before .. thanks for your help.
