Came free with using a much newer version of Autoconf.  :)

As near as I can tell, both of the problems you ran into were fixed in
CURRENT a long time ago when I redid how configure handles all of the path
variables in the build system.  Was the only other problem you were
running into in CURRENT the shared library path issue?

I think what I need to do is add an explanation somewhere of shared
library search paths for people who haven't encountered these issues
before.  I'll try to find a good place in INSTALL for that.
