+# a script for use by autoconf to make the Makefiles
+# from the Makefile.in's
+#
+# the original autoconf mechanism first splits all substitutions into groups
+# of ca. 90, and than invokes sed for _every_ Makefile.in and every group
+# (so around 2-3 times per Makefile.in). So this takes forever, as sed
+# has to recompile the regexps every time.
+#
+# this script does better. It changes all Makefile.ins in one process.
+# in kdelibs the time for building Makefile went down from 2:59 min to 13 sec!
