Main problem with autoconf is the performance hit for native builds.
I think I've mentioned before that that could be addressed with some
suitable make fu - ie. if we're not cross-building, add a -Inative/include
or something (where you have static versions of headers suitable for 
native builds), else run configure - probably want an

I've never seen any indication though that others want the above,
so never set it up.
