Despite any complaints of autoconf/automake, I'd take those over imake
_any_ day. I've just faced way too many broken imake installations and
broken twisty things. imake is why I gave up on getting tightvnc to
build again on solaris.
Just my 2 cents worth.
Does imake even remotely support cross building?
