Hi folks,

here's a little article I wrote about an approach for encapsulating
platform dependent stdc-lib fixes (ie. some platforms have broken
string handling, etc) behind pkg-config.

It is mostly directed on autoconf (It is the one I have most of my
daily trouble with), but of course the approach works with other
buildsystems, even plain make, too.

The permanent URL of the article:

I'm also currently working on concrete wrapper packages:
