I'll soon be able to provide Linux accounts for just such a thing,
although I imagine such demand is quite limited, with most people having
access to a Windows/Unix/MacOS X machine.

Although I think with shared libraries we'll be much closer to being
able to run things like autoconf under RISC OS natively, although I'm
sure there are lots of fiddly bits to be sorted - I suspect quite a bit
of work, but not of it terribly taxing.
