I think this tone of reply is very harsh, and I feel for the OP. Has it
suddenly become a requirement to know emacs-lisp, and have a reasonable
understanding of `autoload' to even install?

A very formal announcement and good documentation would perhaps have been a
good idea. Don't get me wrong - I like the new makefile, but there *is*
now magic that there never was, without question. 

I think it would be better to refer to some good documentation rather
than short terse admonishment over something that `used to work'.

My 2c.

Best, Martyn
