That is great!

I have, however, made a try on a libwww-config. It is based on
gtk-config.in. I do not know if it is of any use, but here it is:

libwww-config.in:

#!/bin/sh

prefix=@prefix@
exec_prefix=@exec_prefix@
exec_prefix_set=no

usage="\
Usage: libwww-config [--prefix[=DIR]] [--exec-prefix[=DIR]] [--version] [--libs] [--cflags]"

if test $# -eq 0; then
      echo "${usage}" 1>&2
      exit 1
fi

while test $# -gt 0; do
  case "$1" in
  -*=*) optarg=`echo "$1" | sed 's/[-_a-zA-Z0-9]*=//'` ;;
  *) optarg= ;;
  esac

  case $1 in
    --prefix=*)
      prefix=$optarg
      if test $exec_prefix_set = no ; then
        exec_prefix=$optarg
      fi
      ;;
    --prefix)
      echo $prefix
      ;;
    --exec-prefix=*)
      exec_prefix=$optarg
      exec_prefix_set=yes
      ;;
    --exec-prefix)
      echo $exec_prefix
      ;;
    --version)
      echo @VERSION@
      ;;
    --cflags)
      echo -I@includedir@/@PACKAGE@ @DEFS@
      ;;
    --libs)
      echo -L@libdir@ @LIBS@ -lwww
      ;;
    *)
      echo "${usage}" 1>&2
      exit 1
      ;;
  esac
  shift
done

To use it, the line

bin_SCRIPTS = libwww-config

should be inserted into Makefile.am, and

libwww-config

should be inserted in the AC_OUTPUT part of configure.in

It seems to work on this Sun i am using now, but I do not know about
other systems.
