    5 Things that should be changed, regardless of the tools used to implement the configure system. 
     5Things that should be changed (or at least discussed), regardless of the tools used to implement the configure system. 
    66 
    77  * Should be able to override hints files from the command line.  Let the user shoot themselves in the foot. 
     
    99  * use a standard mechanism for parsing options, to unify the true/false/set/unset/use/don't syntax. 
    1010  * Don't rely on perl's Config for information. 
     11 
     12See issues http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=56634 , especially: don't use Configure.pl to generate files that should be generated by simple makefile rules. Don't require --maintainer, have config just autodetect and create appropriate rules.
