A host inspection/configuration tool to replace autoconf

Project description

The goal of this package is to be a replacement for GNU autoconf support for a package which needs to “inspect” the local host system to see if it needs some special local configurations to make it work.

The idea is to replace the ‘configure’ script generated by an assortment of autoconf tools (… along with all of the dependencies of sed, gawk, make, … which generally must be the GNU versions) with a pure Python implementation. Ideally, it is basically an extension of the functionality in distutils, and relies heavily on that infrastructure.

Hostconf now only relies on the necessary items in distutils which would be used to build the extensions anyway (cc, c++, ld, …)

Have a look at the README in the source repo.
