That seems like a good project -- I would encourage you to try and use the
configure scripts in each sub-directory so that the top-level
configure script would remain relatively independent of the sub-pieces.

Perhaps these two libraries could be packaged together as a single
library; while they do very different things, they're both necessary
for any rendering application. Besides, we could use a better name than
either 'libic' or 'libpixregion'.

Hmm. Might be nice to know how those guys solved this problem; at least
we'd have an example to work from.
