Sorry 'bout that.. is that on sourceware?

Agreed, but aborting seems a little extreme, no?
Besides, configure could be a little smarter, as an example..

configure:3899: checking whether setvbuf arguments are reversed

I can understand that with a K&R Compiler you would have to execute,
but if the compiler in ANSI then execution is not necessary to test
for this, the compiler should warn.

I would be happy to discuss ( and even contribute to a fix) for this
and other cross issues.
