It is very likely that this wrapper is used, as without it'd be very difficult 
to do the ports.

There is not much of documentation, mainly source code, check 
http://ituglib.connect-community.org and select the (latest) floss package.

I'll have a go at your testdir later, maybe tomorrow (if $dayjob permits).

Bye, Jojo

Does everyone use this wrapper script? What if someone runs configure with

Can you tell us more about the workarounds here? alloca, fsync, truncate,
and openpty/forkpty all are already supported by gnulib.

Maybe the simplest start on all this is to evaluate how far gnulib already
covers the needs on your platform, and which gnulib tests fail.
I've prepared a testdir from today's gnulib, with the proposed changes, for you
at  http://www.haible.de/bruno/gnu/testdir.tar.gz

What compilation errors, link errors, test failures does it show with
  $ ./configure
  $ make
  $ make check
