Gconfigure is a shell-script that allows for a more easy building of programs for sources.
If you want to build a tarball, you'll usually execute:
tar -xzvf mypackge.tar.gz
su -c "make install"
With gconfigure, you'll merely right-click on the tarball and choose build. Some dialogs will allow you to set the necessary options and the program will be installed for you.
Including adding it to you package management system. Installing a package from source will be almoust the same as installing it from rpm/deb/tgz.
· bash, gzip bzip2, sed, grep etc.
