hand-roll a configuration

From the Jargon File – hand-roll:

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.”
