The main reason is to be able to package up an ACE/TAO distribution  
for inclusion with our software and to be able to use the pkgconfig  
files. In general, it is a little easier to build with the autoconf  
tools as well IMHO.

OK. I would like to take a look at it. I used the autoconf build under  
5.5 and things worked fairly well. I may be misunderstanding things  
but isn't the only issue setting up the proper defines for the  
config.h file or is there more to it than that?
