IMHO, we should strive for being correct - adding extra slashes is
very sloppy behavior.  I'd prefer us to be not sloppy at the cost of
a little more maintenance - and really how often is this code changed?

I believe that the whole code is an obstacle to maintaining
our build system.  It attempts to circumvent the autoconf code and
ends up hurting us more than it helps.  -- justin
