Hi Franz,

I recently made a small change to configure.in, regenerated configure (by 
running autoconf) and checked the files into CVS.

While my changes do not explicitly impose the restrictions that you 
describe it is possible that my version of autoconf is not playing nicely.

If you have autoconf you could try running it and see if the resulting 
configure script works better for you.

Other SANE folks:  Is there an officially blessed version of autoconf 
that should be used for this?
