Attached is another small tarball for a modified build system:
... I'd appreciate if you could test
I tried it and it worked fine.
(2) the files added to a package maintained somewhere else go into a
subdirectory -- easier to maintain.
The disadvantage is, that if a system library doesn't meet the
requirements the whole process fails (no possibility to switch to
the included version at such a late stage).
Doesn't seem serious to me. The error message can just say "rerun
starting with configure --with-whatever". Also, generally we want to
use our libraries instead of system ones anyway. As you know.
Thanks so much for tackling this.
