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.

Message hi,

I want to use current for use in my lab to update my Red Hat machines.
My servers all run FreeBSD though, so I'd like to run current on an
internal FreeBSD server. I noticed that the Makefile isn't very
portable, I've been playing a bit with autoconf to add checks for
Python, I found a nice one, used it and it seems to work, still a lot of
stuff that has to be taken care of.

Would this be interesting for current?
