The only -D that people need to determine if they need (other than what
they always did) was the one's for the regex package, which can be
added in even in need be.

I agree that on those systems that we know need the regex stuff, could
be folded into the OS-specific section (in which case we'd move the build
of CFLAGS to later on... Hell, we could even do away with AUX_FLAGS
and AUX_LIBS totally in Makefile.tmpl by building FLAGS and LIBS based
on them).

This is only the 1st step... I plan on working on some version of
intelligent Configure soon where all this will be folded in (ie:
more streamlined Makefile, etc...)
