Well, there is the minor point that that's all the end-user has to
work with, so they'll send patches relative to ./configure which
we'll need to backtrace into Or else we'll get
something like "this needs to be changed."

On some OSs, unfortunately, you have to edit ./configure to
get it to work or to "override" some assumptions.
