Chorebox is to be an alternative to -autoconf- — only unlike -autoconf-, it will run at install-time rather than be a tool that only the developer needs. Some might shrink from this strategy in that it creates one more dependency — but really, it doesn't do so any more than requiring this or that library would —- and using this strategy (rather than that embraced by -autoconf-) will afford far more flexibility in package design.

Update #1

Looking for someone who works with -cygwin- —- for the purpose of frequently testing this project on that platform, occasionally providing other technical readout information. I have concluded that if at all possible, this package should support -cygwin- —- as to write-off support for -cygwin- without seriously trying to support it would be most inconsistent with the project's philosophy.
