Forget it. This works right now and I'm not going to touch the configure
code unless really required.

Slight changes are breaking the entire build system for me. Trash these

Indentation should not break anything !?
I had issues when changing configure.ac as well - though they all were my own
faults, either f*cking up brackets or macro misspelling (e.g. AS_IF instead
AC_IF). These things are often reported far away from the point where they
are. So you stare and stare and can't see anything.
My strategy now is to autoreconf after each little change and if it breaks,
CTRL-z until it works again, than continue changes at that point...

But of course, don't waste your time with these things.

Not indentation. But simply moving the libpsl detection code from its current location to where zlib and openssl are detected causes a spurious failure in the generation of the LIBS variable. It's very weird and after a couple of hours of debugging, I simply gave up. The effort wasn't worth it.

Thanking You,
