Ralf, aren't you a little unfair today?  

  1) `--includedir foo' is supported, as are all other options
  2) that was just a copy'n'paste error, nothing terrific
  3) the handling of space separated option arguments in
     configure looks very straightforward

Besides, my equal key is broken, this character is missing from
the X fonts I have installed, and my little finger is set in
plaster. ;o)
