Please CC me as I'm not a subscriber. Here is a patch for long
standing TODO item (see the next to last entry).

---cut TODO----
in order to use the AC_CANONICAL_SYSTEM macro, I have to have
install-sh somewhere nearby --- why is this?  I have no real reason to
distribute install-sh, other than that its absence breaks this code.

Shouldn't the above loop be looking for config.sub and config.guess?

adding AC_CANONICAL_HOST to my script caused
all sorts of odd/unexplained errors.  Obviously, I had to go
get copies of config.guess, config.sub and install-sh from the
autoconf distribution, but the error messages and autoconf docs
didn't explain that very well.

BTW, why don't you open a bug/patch tracker on Savanna and crosspost
here bug reports/changes? Will it be more convenient?

P.S. When the new version will be available? It is almost 2006
already. =) Happy New Year!
