There is a slight difference here. If the user is used to running
"rbconf", he/she will be confused either way. He will not know what
"re-run configure" means, as all he knows is "rbconf". When presented
the solution "type ../tools/configure" he will think that this is some
new secret Rockbox magic that we never told him about.

Had he used "../tools/configure" from the start, he would probably put 2
and 2 together when we say "re-run configure" and do the right thing.

Yes, I'm sorry about not commenting on the positive side of the devkit.
It did open a door for the less experienced users back when we didn't
have the cygwin packages.

What does that have to do with anything? Besides, the WAV codec you are
talking about was never going to work, since it was made for a different
hardware solution. Also, you never showed us an official statement from
either Micronas nor Archos permitting us to use it.

I don't know what youre talking about.

Why can't you have a technical discussion without making it personal?
