      OK, I've restored the src/configure script from upstream now. Thanks
      for figuring this out and pointing it out to me. I made the mistake
      of running "autoconf" instead of "make autoconf" and that is what
      caused the problem in the first place.

      I don't want to sound ungrateful or discouraging, but unfortunately
      your posts are often so long that it makes it hard for me to get the
      point and I often don't have the energy to read all the multiple
      postings to one thread. In this case, if you had kept it to one post
      which simply said "replace src/configure with the one from upstream"
      it would have been so much easier for me to fix this. Instead I
      misunderstood what you were talking about and hence my very delayed
      reaction. My apologies for this.

      Anyway, I hope everything works as it should now and thanks once again.
