I does not require either autotools nor pkg-config because this is a server back-end with no other user input than from the command line. Second, the software does not require any library other than want comes with the must cut-down version of Debian:
$ ldd tptestserver
        linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0xffffe000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6 (0xa7e42000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xa7f9c000)

The reason for me to choose autotools is that this is what I do in all my other projects and have come to like it. Another reason is that the source needs some house cleaning and, in my opinion, some clearer structure.
