Re: Overriding all commands in

How about

./configure AR=:  [other arguments etc.]

You also might be able to force this override in, but that would
defeat all the nifty things that the autotools are good for.
Perhaps what you really want is "--disable-static" on the configure command 
You can also make this the default to disable static libs with:

          # Turn off static libraries, since they aren't useful in python 
modules and
          # make the build process take too long.

One of these should have the desired effect, depending on what you desire. ;)

Hope this helps,
