In general, I think the sooner Configure will be converted to
autoconf, the better and easier it'll be.

I'm very pleased that PARI Configure is not based on this monster.  If
autoconf's Configure fails, you are busted; period.  IIRC, PARI one is
loosely based on metadist's Configure which is miles better in this
regard (allows an interactive run).

Could you split the Configure file in smaller scripts that would be sourced from
Configure ? That would enhance maintainability somewhat.

Say one script to find the compiler, one to find the linker, etc...

I have found information about shared libraries on MacOS X at
<http://fink.sourceforge.net/doc/porting/shared.php> but I do not have a box
to test.

I have Mac OS X boxes (10.15 and 10.2.2), and am happy to test if needs be.
