I think that the reason why you don't see it with 1.27.1 is that you
haven't applied the patch completely.  Was the patch run successful?

It seems that you did not run the autoreconf after patching.  In that
case, running the ./configure by make for the second time is expected.
You are supposed usually to do only:

  $ patch -p1 < fix.patch
  $ make

When the patch touches certain set of files (which it actually does), you
need to regenerate configure script.  I think you hit the ./configure
manually without regenerating it first (e.g. by autoreconf).  But
the Makefile generated by automake is clever enough to regenerate the
configure script for you and run it, when necessary.

Hmm, if that is truth, that is quite unlucky, I would say.
