This is stupid advice.  Autotools is by far the easiest way to build
successfully on all platforms, and to cross-compile code.  I invite
you to try cross-compiling (for example) gtk2 versus boost, and you
will see that writing your own build system, or using a lesser build
system that doesn't have all the experience behind it of autotools (or
cmake), is an idiotic idea.

Rich.
