 When Programs Won't Compile

Linux Devices takes a look at configure.

"Peter Seebach discusses what to do when an automatic configuration script doesn't work -- and what you can do as a developer to keep failures to a minimum. After all, if your build process doesn't work, users are just as badly off as if your program doesn't work once it's built. A lot of open source programs come with configure scripts these days. One purpose of such a script is to automate the guesswork of targeting a new system. "
