But as far as I can tell, you're not making use of any extra macros?

After applying the patches and running ./, then
running ./configure --disable-libmagic failed with this:

./configure: line 8314: syntax error near unexpected token `NCURSESW,'
./configure: line 8314: `       PKG_CHECK_MODULES(NCURSESW, ncursesw,'

I did have pkg-config installed, but apparently it needs some minimum
version?  Should the configure script not test for this, instead of choking
in a syntax error?

Oh, during autogen, I still see some messages like these:

Replacing file m4/lib-ld.m4 (non-gnulib code backed up in m4/lib-ld.m4~) !!
Replacing file m4/lib-link.m4 (non-gnulib code backed up in m4/lib-link.m4~) !!
Replacing file m4/lib-prefix.m4 (non-gnulib code backed up in 
m4/lib-prefix.m4~) !!

After installing a more recent pkg-config, no more problems.
