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
- 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
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.
