Couldn't the auto tools scripts simply call qmake? It really knows
best how to build the Makefiles than auto tools would IMHO.

I feel your pain, I've tried to fix those scripts to find Lua under
gentoo once and I couldn't accomplish anything.
Could we consider an alternative? (hiding from angry mob with torches) :)

Btw, how would you feel about retiring the wxWidgets configurator?
