The Autoconf manual is pretty good.  ``info Autoconf''

Try this patch.  I haven't tested it, and it probably isn't the best solution,
but it may well do the job for you.  After applying it, regenerate ``configure''
using ``autoconf''.

I have a sinking feeling that the C library in Mac OS X was called something
exotic, like "System" (libSystem.dylib).  If that's the case, you may need to
use something like that instead of "c".
