Thanks a lot for taking the time of doing this. 
Of course that break all my patches against Configure :)

Now we need to document each 
case "$osname-$arch" in
to say what they are supposed to do.

BTW, is 
. config/foo bar1 bar2 bar3
portable ?

There are several things I would like to change in configure:

1) Respect of environment variables CC,LD,DLLD,CFLAGS, etc...
The LD value is clobbered 

2) Better gcc handling. Use gcc -print-prog-name=ld to find ld
and use gcc for linking with proper -Wl, options.
