What does wc -l configure output after you run autoconf?

Anyway, I can't see any reason why setting CC and possibly INCS and
LIBS is more difficult than dealing with obscure arguments to
configure, which also may require CFLAGS, LDFLAGS and CC in the
environment if you intend to cross compiler -- OR some --target-XYZ
and --host-XYZ arguments...

For which target platform do you attempt to compile dwm?

(I only did it for maemo so far, and there I didn't need to change
anything at all, because my scratchbox setup was done properly).

Kind regards,
