Maybe it's due to some Debian-specific patch to autoconf (I'm using
the version shipped with Ubuntu Dapper, version 2.59a-7).  We could
revert configure to the last version used, and stick with the
configure script for the rest of the pretest.

I think the easiest thing to do is to apply the hunks of the diff
until you find which part causes compilation to fail for you.  It
shouldn't take that long with a binary-search.
