If gnu's configure, or gcc itself, or whatever it is you are talking
about, has a problem, please tell them.

I don't know where you post it; there is a gnu.misc.discuss newsgroup;
maybe they'd see a post and tell you what to do with it, eg where
to email it to.

Yes, just grepped big .newsrc-list.  There is a gnu.gcc.bug, and
also a gnu.gdb.bug.
