something like pkg-config perhaps...
it works quite well here (linux), it's a bit of a pain
to get it working right for doing cross-compiles (MinGW)
Where working right requires it to completely ignore the native config data.
I haven't managed to get autoconf to work for cross compiling, scons can be convinced though.
