You're right ... I did an evil thing, I assumed it was still the correct
bug.  Something is refusing to build shared libs (according to the
output of configure) unless I toss in that and --enable-shared.  The
last is usually a default, so I _assumed_ it couldn't be the trouble,
and simply tossed it in (as a flag) as being generally good practice.

Oh, I see.  It's not a default.  Never seen that before.  Sorry, that
was my fault.  Port is complete now, thanks.
