There's actually reasons for this, plus on the BSDs, you don't build from
hand, you use the ports/pkgsrc frameworks, which give the configure script
a bunch of “fixes” and correct compiler/linker options to pick up what is

Yes, on BSD, building source from hand is usually slightly different or
even broken, but we benefit from this.

</off-topic> (sorry, couldn't resist defending here)

Your bugreport is really incomplete, you didn't tell us what OS, maybe
parts of config.log or the error messages. Maybe next time?

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.              -- Coywolf Qi Hunt
