Overall, across all the packages in the distribution, the build process 
has quite a few warts.  I run gentoo and i always have to tweak 
individual Makefiles even after I get autoconf to correctly generate 
configure.

This is not really a complaint per se: if there are problems and I can 
fix them I should feed the solutions back to the community. However, I 
am lazy and forgetful :)
