Hey, I don't mean to erase all small programms with only a main or 2 or
3 files. It's easy to change the Makefile or compile them by hand.
I'm talking about the big ones which need libraries and includes and
never find them on you're system unless you change all makefiles in all

Imagine something like XFree having no configuration script and you
would have to change something?

And also imagine something like XFree to break just because somebody
made a link from gcc to egcc.

May the source be with you.
