=Configuration and Installation=
*Split config.h into a part for Octave-specific configuration things (this part can be installed) and the generic HAVE_X type of configure information that should not be installed.
*Create a docs-only distribution?
*Better binary packaging and distribution, especially on Windows.
*Octave Emacs mode needs maintenance.
*Convert build system to a non-recursive Automake setup. See how Makefile.am files currently include module.mk files in subdirectories, extend this concept to the entire project so there is only one top-level Makefile.am.
