   To be more precise, there was an attempt at using kbuild in parallel
of our autotools build system. It now seems to be rotting in the attic
because no one maintains it. So far I haven't seen anything that could
replace up to date autotools for our extensive use of their various
features. Not that I wouldn't be glad to get rid of most of the bloat,
but at least it works.
