Thank you for taking the time, I am currently working on adding native 
convex hull support
to ODE (Not using GJK, in case anyone asks), and I would likelly be 
reviweing autotools, in order
to take out libtool, add support for shared libraries and support to add 
the contribution code as "--enable" flags to it.
Anyway, enought babbling, I don't have much time in my hands, but I'll 
take a look at the patches and see what can I help with.

Again, Thanks.
