If we get time after this project is shipped, then sure, I'll have a go. 
  However, I felt it was important to at least have the changed source 
files out there before we started using this with a client. Not just 
because of a responsibility, but also because we are hoping these 
changes will be part of 1.0.15 when it comes out.

I don't have automake and autoconf working properly on my windows box, 
though, so it's unlikely that matches will be to Makefile.ams or 
configure.in... I hope that would be OK.

In the meantime, there are only 2 or 3 edits we had to do to Makefiles - 
you can more or less ignore most of the diff to the configure output, 
the interesting diffs are in the resulting Makefiles.
