I would like for you and I to get our heads together
on this soon.  I will be checking in my changes related
to this before the end of the week, at which time, I
think we could talk about using your approach.

Thanks for your interest and assistance with this.
I am looking forward to working with you!

*** How about you other folks who have ported code
    using autoconf and friends?  What do you think
    of this angle?  All suggestions welcome and
    indeed solicited. ***
