My generated configure script recognises a --site option:

   -site | --site | --sit)
     ac_prev=site ;;
   -site=* | --site=* | --sit=*)
     site=$ac_optarg ;;

However, $site is never referred to.  What's the purpose of this?

If memory serves, there used to be a -site option in all 'configure' scripts. That feature was removed decades ago, and the above code attempts to cater to people who were invoking 'configure' with the old option.
