Math::Calc::Units is a Perl module and associated command-line tool 'ucalc' that performs simple calculations while taking the units used into consideration, and automatically determines a reasonable set of units for the output. For example, 384Kbps will be described as 48KB/sec and 3.955 GB/day. 20MB/384Kbps will produce "7 minute 6 sec".

configure doesn't generate Makefiles. That's the most common target, but it still has to be explicitly listed in configure.in. configure merely replaces @VAR@ in somefile.in to produce somefile, for every 'somefile' listed in AC_OUTPUT.
