I agree totally with you but it's only a problem when building the thing.
Installing from setups / red carpet works like a charm.
I think this is the problem in general with makefiles. We really should have
something better, but this would be a lot of work.
For example, the thing shouldn't say "libgc <, I do not like
it, ERROR, I do not install for you"...
In this new era it should be something like: "Dude, you didn't have the
correct version of libgc, I installed a newer one for you my master".
Ultimatly, this could be possible with a MSBuild-like clone.

Eventually, we'll get there :).
