[from obs. mainstream slang `hand-rolled' in
opposition to `ready-made', referring to cigarettes] To
perform a normally automated software installation or configuration
process by hand; implies that the normal process failed due to
bugs in the configurator or was defeated by something exceptional
in the local environment. "The worst thing about being a gateway
between four different nets is having to hand-roll a new sendmail
configuration every time any of them upgrades."
