      Description

      The current Unix build architecture is controlled by a custom
      runConfigure script for constructing the project Makefiles.

      The new GNU AutoTools infrastructure can do this in a
      common way using Makefile.am and Configure.ac files to
      construct a consistent package build and install interface.
      The tools should automatically identify the proper architecture
      and compilers needed for a successful build.

      The Xerces-C XML Parser project has already done the migration
      for their C/C++ code base, started with version 3.0.

      Sincerely,
      Steven J. Hathaway
