There are two bugs here.   The first is, as I understand things, that
the author of the package which you are trying to configure has failed
to set up something that would normally make "Report this to
address@hidden" actually say "Report this to
some-more-useful-mailing-list."    I suspect that the fact that
autoconf allows package maintainers to fail to set the variable is, in
fact, essentially a bug in autoconf.

Autoconf 2.57 generates configure scripts that always ask for a report to address@hidden Autoconf 2.59 and later ask for a report to the package bug report address, if specified, or else to "the GNU foo lists" (for example). It will take time for installations of Autoconf 2.57 die out, and even longer to obsolete all package releases bootstrapped with Autoconf 2.57. These reports
will trickle in for years to come.
