I finally got around to looking at this again.  Dumping config.log produced
this build log:

which showed that there was some oddity involving quoting of -DDEFAULT_XSHELL
which I was passing via --with-cflags to configure.  This worked when the
actual binary was built, as $xshell contained the right value, but seems to
have screwed up when compiling conftest in a way that did still compile...

 configure:5100:  gcc -o conftest -O2 -DDEFAULT_XSHELL="\"x-terminal-emulator -e 
${prefix}/share/vile/\""  -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -fstack-protector  -D_GNU_SOURCE  
-I/usr/lib/perl/5.12/CORE  conftest.c  >&5
 <command-line>:0:16: warning: missing terminating " character [enabled by 
 /usr/bin/ld: warning: cannot find entry symbol 
${prefix}/share/vile/\""; defaulting to 000000000040039c

hmm - that's odd (perhaps a new bash bug?).  I don't recall changing that
slice for quite a while.

I'll take a look (have been distracted with ncurses/xterm, ...).


....but hung checking for ANSI header files (configure:5487) on just s390 and
armel.  Weird.

In any case, I changed the way in which this value was set and both
architectures built fine.  For reference, the packaging change is here:;a=commitdiff;h=5e5e67609781bdf4b9bc5c8e163313f89363414d
