      This particular message below is not me agitating for a patch, but just
      asking a question so I can learn more about how MacVim works.

      Why is it that MacVim has two configure scripts of substance,
      src/configure and src/auto/configure, whereas in BramVim src/configure
      is just a wrapper that calls src/auto/configure?

      The git logs tell me that originally MacVim's src/configure WAS just a
      wrapper, but that it became "meaty" on Oct 18th 2007, where the commit
      message was "Generated configure script"
