Ah, that works.  Thank you Arun.

[ I originally wrote a much longer mail containing many examples of how
  the above doesn't work.  But they all simply come down to
  autoconf/automake/libtool still being as fragile as they were a decade
  ago.  "make install prefix=/foo/" fails.  "make install prefix=/foo"
  works.  And the ten lines of error messages are completely useless.
  "autoconf -i" fails spectacularly after autoconf/automake were run.
  Removing every file generated by autoconf/automake and it works as it
  I tend to agree with Rob Landley that the clean solution these days is
  to write against well-established standards not add a configure
  script.  Any platform worth porting to supports posix and sus.
  But that is completely beside the point.  So please ignore my
  ramblings and thanks again, Arun. ]
