Having a ./configure is very convenient for developers and users alike. 
Hoever, it does not have to be generated from Autoconf. The OCaml 
distribution uses manually written shell scripts, I am using a Perl 
script (since Perl is basically always available). You can take a look 

I found it much easier to implement the checks that I need in my own 
little Perl script rather than relying on Autotools.
