Hi Jens,

I had this problem once and got rid of it by upgrading my autoconf.

One thing is sure, the GNU auto[conf|make] tools are pieces of [beeep]
and they are to blame in this case... 

If someone knows why those infame shells turn an honest developper's
life into a nightmare, then, he'd better stand and speek up now ;-)
