This is a remnant of INN's bizarre merger of two different build systems.
include/configdata.h is corrected by subst to include the information
determined by autoconf, but because subst is a C program that has to be
built, this won't happen until you do a make.  The first thing make will
do is build subst and run it, and include/configdata.h should then have
the right define.

This will hopefully go away (or at least be drastically reduced) in the
next version of INN.
