For small things probably yes, but that sort of side-stepped my
question.  Even if we wrote our own static makefiles you will still need
the -devel packages.

For something like monodevelop it will then also fail in several ways.
 - installing all the gnome related files to the right locations
(.desktop, etc)
 - I18N stuff that seems to be integrated in automake/autoconf nicely
 - conditional things
 - tons of other things discovered along the way, i.e. little mac
specific things

That being said if it really is too complicated and is preventing people
from using/contributing lets find out what is actually the trouble and
maybe we can simplify things a bit.  One thing is we can now add project
files to svn once some details are figured out.
