Well, I certainly trust your judgment more than my own on such issues,

The consequences that I *thought* might occur by defining something manually
in userdefs.h that had been designed to be defined by the configure script.
It *seemed* to me that "going behind autoconf's back," i.e., attempting to
forcibly override, could quite possibly break the script or its product.
