What's so hard about


find . \( -name 'configure.*' -o -name Makefile.am \) -print | xargs grep CFLAGS

anyway?

Tha fact the you actually *seldomly* have the precise version
of autoconf/automake/perl/gawk installed on the host you wont to reproduce the
THRE stages to get a hand and Makefile.


I could turn the question back: What's so hard about grepping the source?

I think this is a straw man. Manipulating CFLAGS is just *not that
hard*.

In practice it IS.


 A few minutes will suffice for all but the most ludicrously
byzantine project (and I'm not talking `uses automake', here, I'm
talking `generates C code in order to compute CFLAGS to use when
compiling other code'.)

Thus by your definition most projects are byzantine. glibc, tetex ans so on...
