Well, they are not really idiots. Some of them produce great code.
they don't care to autoconf it, or to spend more time on polishing
it. If it runs with good performance (which is the key element in
numerical code) and they can easily deploy it on the available
hardware, then they can turn to solving actual problems from their
field with this tool.
Which sort-of hints shipping static libs is a short-term workaround and
energy would be better spend making tools like eclipse integrate our
best-of-breed infrastructure (autoconf, rpm, yum, mock whatever)
transparently so these people don't have to spend time on plumbing to
produce modern sofwtare.
That would help adoption with the huge Visual Basic & Java crowd too
