So I need to learn how to do a changelog entry.

Yup.  Got autoconf-2.61.  Didn't work.  Got m4-1.4.8.  Now it works.
On Solaris.  Can't do autoconf on z/OS because I haven't a working
perl there.

But now on z/OS, I  get config.log:

    configure:2002: checking build system type
    configure:2020: result: i370-ibm-openedition
    configure:2042: checking host system type
    configure:2057: result: i370-ibm-openedition
    configure:2083: autobuild project... GNU coreutils
    configure:8832: checking whether // is distinct from /
    configure:8861: result: yes

... Success there, at least.  I have no plans to try the cross-compiler

Now I need to figure out why configure can't make getmntinfo work.
It works on Solaris,  so I guess that becomes my experimental

Thanks again,
