Hello Tim,

  Autoconf is a set of *extensible* macros.  Not just because it does
not contain macro to test a particular "new" feature means it should
be thrown away altogether with other useful functionalities.  SELinux is
not just a Fedora Core thingy, it applies as well to SuSE Linux and
any other linux distribution that comply to SELinux.  I hope to take
on the configure issue as soon as my immediate horizon is cleared, so
that we can conduct the discussion in less abstract terms.
