Thanks for reporting this, and thanks for taking time to work on it.

I found the source of the original bug you reported.  I'll push a new release 
with the fix, when I get the chance, within the next week.

As for your other mods, I can take a look, but I have little time to maintain 
Aris as it is.  I'm grateful that you're doing work on it, but I can't maintain 
an additional build system, and I have no desire to move away from GNU 
Autotools at this time.
