how can I check software configuration parameters after installation?

After configuring and installing some software by going

./configure --with-foo=bar --with-bar=foo
make install

is there anyway of checking (at a later date) what the installation was configured with?

Does it vary from software to software?

configure makes a log file with all the settings for the program. Whatever configure did, it's in there. or, when you do "./configure" you can put "> config.txt" at the end of it and it will write the output of configure to that file. The stuff you want to look at is near the end.
