[20051108] Rant: a minor clue when using autoconf
It's not enough to just dump @foo@ in your Makefile.in and then just blindly -- untested, in releases! -- expect the right things to happen. Esp. when @foo@ expands to ${bar}, make sure that you define "bar" in your Makefile also, e.g.
 bar=	@bar@ 
Now guess what - this has to go up ALL THE WAY, until everything is defined. Who would have thought... *sigh*
