Good catch, thanks.

However I decided to solve this differently: the only purpose of my
definition of AR and RANLIB (quite old, in fact) was to support LTO,
which is a bad match for Jitter anyway.  If I let Autoconf do its own

work anyway.

Committed a fix.  Testing this on unusual configurations will be
