The script is not auto-generated. We are aware of autoconf but we
decided to use a simple shell script without any other dependency
to check for installed packages. I would not like to split the file
since I prefer to have exactly one file. If the detection mechanism
does not work for your host we can talk about fixing the issue. But
please keep


in mind.

Kind regards,
