Thanks.  Getting C++ and Javascript fully working is going to be a lot of work: 
C++ needs backtracking and Javascript needs “pruning”.  But the C99 parser is 
mature enough to provide some value, I think.

Regarding using autoconf, I was hoping to minimize overhead code.  If the lone 
Makefiles are not cutting it I can work to blend in autoconf.   

Irrelevant side note: Years ago I developed a tool like automake, called 
metamake, that provided macros, implemented in M4, to expand “" into 
“makefile".   To this day automake just seems to me like the wrong way to do 
that job.
