> Also, looking at it, the line about gzopen puzzles me: 

that's an artifact of the way the configure script is constructed:  it
makes tests, saves the results of those tests into variables.  If a given
variable is set, it does not get reset (so the first test on gzopen failed,
but a different name was found - but the first is still recorded).

only names with a given convention are saved into config.cache; there may
be useful names that aren't cached.
