well, to put that into perspective, the src/Gnu directory was introduced
for the linux port years ago, that was at times when it still made
sense to put a "separate" and "contributed" build system in its own
directory. now things have changed in terms of how gem is developed in
general, thats why src/Gnu may seem a bit odd. I have chosen the name
"Gnu" because at that time the autoconf system was supposed to be the
prefered system for the gnu compilers and I used it for gcc on
Dunno, the old README may still be the original from Mark.
for the rest, I still think that the configure script should build the
official gem version without any "flags-of-your-necessity".
