The problem does not seem to exist when it comes to porting apps to proprietary Unix systems, so I fail to see why the Linux case would be exceptionally difficult.
I agree that the LSB has not (yet) brought us the standards base we were hoping for. Smart software vendors that want to make their software run on Linux platforms will want to take a good, hard look at their own configuration methods and probably make use of, for instance, autoconf. Just like they would in other cases, by the way.
Could you hand me the list of "20 different flavours", or were you just trying to make the problem look bigger than it is?
