I probably should have mentioned the Makefiles distributed with the
library prior to 5.6.3 were very basic. They were end-user biased with
options like -march=native. They were not distro friendly at all.

Recent makefiles are more distro friendly. We try to work closely with
folks like Debian and Fedora for packaging.

We also help maintain Autotools
( and Cmake
( for folks who wish to use
them. They are unofficial but they should "just work" if we are doing
our jobs correctly.
