I think you're referring to this line though:

This seems to be expected behavior, notwithstanding my fix
(the strings aren't truncated, so some will wrap anyway).

By the way, a few lines further would show _this_ odd feature:

  Keyboard layout                  : [15][(1)__ROT13'd keyboard layout__________
^^ (the code really does this intentionally, when the string
    does not extend as far as the field definition - some of the
    other strings in this selecton do use the full width of the

Text fields in the options menu differ from the selection-fields.
The latter have a fixed width which depends on their contents,
and can wrap, since turning on numbering changes the nice estimate
that formatted them into ~40 columns.

This part is a bug report - no, I didn't notice this.

that's expected behavior (a bias on the part of the autoconf
developers from long ago).  But if your file timestamps are
set to reflect the original timestamps, then "make" shouldn't
have anything to build.
