That's definitely on the fptools-ToDo-List: Every package/project should
have its own configuration shell script, configuration header used only
for build time and configuration header included in pre-built distributions.
It's "just" a matter of splitting of and pushing the relevant
parts down the fptools hierarchy. Any volunteers? I'll do it when I've got
some time left and no one else has done it by then, but this will definitely
not be in the near future...
