Auto-configuration is an important part in building many open source projects. This session describes a simple make-only auto-configuration mechanism that is significantly faster than auto-tools and performs at least as well as tools such as Meson/Ninja. It will illustrate it with a variety of projects, including SPICE.

After this session, attendees should be able to use this make-only build system to accelerate the build of their projects, and to contribute it in order to make it more feature-complete and even more comfortable for developers as well as maintainers.
