No, actually this was a shitty point.
I don't know why so many people are apparently that masochistic to
actually go through the shell- madness!

Like, how often do you guys reconfigure your software? Is it too
much to ask for having to run a recompile with config.h in a few
seconds? What's wrong with bloody command line arguments in case
you have to derive from defaults once in a while?

The time lost discussing this GNUshit topic could've much better
been spent on writing actual code.
