I finally started workng with the GNU Automake/Autoconf system for 7DS today. It's really neat! Far easier to work with than the faulty manual Makefiles I've been creating so far. I hope to have a fully GNU-style 7DS system (at least for my part) by the end of this week.
I found that the deadline for submitting my paper to INFOCOM has passed, so I will probably be submitting a paper to ICC07.
