Thanks for the suggestions.  I usually use tcsh, so I tried both sh and ksh 
- identical results with all three when I add the -v flag...  Duh - looking 
at configure, I see it specifies /bin/sh at the top, so trying different 
shells won't matter.

Not sure which version of /bin/sh I have, it is from 1997 though - changing 
configure to use ksh did the trick.

thanks, Phil
