      Description

      To make the configuration and build process more user-friendly we should provide a configure-like script (as a wrapper around the existing GNUmakefiles) to let users familiar with autoconf-based projects more quickly configure, build, and install the library (including its headers). The script should recognize and interpret the most common options such as --prefix=, --enable-shared, --enable-threads, etc. by translating them to the existing infrastructure's equivalents (e.g., BUILDMODE or BUILDTYPE).
