Why does this have to be so difficult?

Ship a config.h.sample file, have a Makefile rule that is forced to
run before any compilation happens that checks if config.h exists
and then created it if missing by copying config.h.sample over, and
then all other source files can include config.h without having to
know anything about config.h.sample's existence.

Did I miss something?
