Robert, the way I dig into these problems is to grep for the
message, in this case "checking for setrlimit declaration"
in "configure".  Once you find it, look at what code it compiles.
That is likely to be the problem.

I suspect that our configure script's a bit out of data (it does
indeed look like a 64-bit problem). Does anyone on the list
have any experience updating configure's M4 macros?
