Right, configure should definitely display a clear warning.

I see nothing wrong with using /usr/bin/mig as the default, as the
resulting error message

  make: /usr/bin/mig: Command not found.

is perfectly clear.

I see no need to mess with the "missing" script for this (but I've
never understood what the missing script is ever good for, I just
guess it has to do with sometimes ignoring errors and then leaving
generated files like configure and Makefile.in unchanged).
