I don't care replacing the Autoconf-based build system with something
better; and if your system is better I'll lobby to use it.

I however have fundamental objections to any move to burry Axiom
deeper into a second class build system, and second class galaxy.

If we ever want to attract more people to Axiom, the least thing we
want is to paint ourselves into an exoteric ghetto. 

Please give a thought to why we don't seem to attract new blood to
Axiom.  It is not that it is that difficult.  I've seen new blood in
the more challenging and difficult GCC system.
