Hi guys,

Thanks for your comments. It was not my purpose to start a debate
around the Autotools, which obviously are still used by lots of
developpers. But, I also hear some programmers talking about how
improve this set because its learning and manage. In fact, I'm not so
an expert in computer science to judge the Autotools, but I qualified
them as "obsolete" because, a part from SCons, I know (the existence
of) projects like PMK (Pre Make Kit)[1] and TOC (The Other
./Configure)[2] that search to improve them.

Thanks a lot. I like C++/GTKmm programming very much and you helped a lot.
