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?
