some programs (e.g., c2man) create a user-configuration file that's not
part of the release.  alternatively, we could make autoconf store all of
the parameters in config.cache (but I don't think that would be flexible
enough).  probably should make the configure script create the user-defs
file if it doesn't exist, otherwise leave it alone (some of these
parameters should be deduced by the configure-script, but not all).

ok (I didn't notice that, but will keep it in mind for subsequent patches)

I'll check - it could be due to the SVr4 curses/color portion of my patch.
