  I sort of disagree. I believe that this guys is unhappy because
what we have in FreeSwitch now is kind of worst of both worlds --
we don't really want to rely on preinstalled and prepackaged libraries
available on the system, yet we also don't want to bite the bullet
and privatize the code. Personally, I think this is one of the 
greatest myth of OpenSource that all you have to do in order to
build a reliable package is: ./configure && make && make install.

  What we currently have in FreeSwith is an attempt to rely on
that. I've used to do lots of packaging for Solaris and believe
me -- there's not much else I hate more than autotools complexity. :-(

  Anyway, it looks like my proposal doesn't really resonate with
lots of folks here, which means I have to come up with extra
benefits. My angle would be a performance one. Stay tuned...
