So it's a consequence of trying to configure using the Posix configure
script.

I'd prefer that all the changes for such a build be committed at once
together, not bit by bit, and only if you eventually succeed to
produce a working binary using this method.

Yes, at the very least.  But let's delay this until you have gone all
the way to building Emacs using this method.  We won't know all of the
implications until you do.
