I second that. When I played around with Speex a while ago, I just
dumped the Speex source files into a .dsp file (Visual Studio Project),
and built that. For another environment, I made a 25 line Makefile
(essentially, a SOURCE = ..... line plus the auto-dependency example
code from the GNU make manual).

The only "problem" is to find out what files are needed for the library
and which are superfluous (i.e. test/demo programs with their own
main()). A minimal Makefile would help to document that, and enable
people create projects, with minimum effort, for all sorts of
environments nobody ever heard of.
