configure script changes /dev/null permissions

Subject: configure script changes /dev/null permissions

User-agent: Wanderlust/2.15.5 (Almost Unreal) SEMI/1.14.6 (Maruoka) FLIM/1.14.8 (Shij┼Ź) APEL/10.6 Emacs/22.0.92 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) MULE/5.0 (SAKAKI)

The configuration script from tramp-cvs changes the permissions on
/dev/null to read-only for non-root users.  (Of course, this makes it
impossible for the non-root users to do many things.)

Following the instructions in the user manual, I did:

# autoconf
# ./configure --with-contrib

and thereafter the permissions on /dev/null were changed.  I am
running autoconf version 2.61.
