Message We've had 1 person want to run current on solaris, one on ... AIX? and
one now on freebsd.

The other 99% of the users all run it on Red Hat Linux.

In my opinion, thats not enough need to beat me over the head with a
ball peen hammer, Uh, I mean use and maintain autoconf.

However, I've not seen what a python programs' autoconf looks like, and
have not played with autoconf in a couple of years. So if you want to
create a patch to auto* current, send it in, but please know I'm going
to think long and hard before I apply it.

Perhaps you could just restructure a couple of things (add some
variables) in the makefile? That patch should be easier, and is far more
likely to be applied.
