"helios" used to be our Solaris zone which has been replaced by the
FreeBSD jail.  It's been the of that time.

I re-read the thread and it mentions running "autoreconf" as script but
I'm not familiar enough with the toolchain to know whether it would need
to be run before or instead of a specific step.  expat-buildconf looks
as if it passed to Gump but if you look at the actual output it doesn't
seem healthy to me either[2]

Unless anybody can provide more information on the autoreconf solution
this might be the only way to go.  Can't promise when I'll find time to
look into it, though.
