Here's a simple patch to fix the problem (copied from
the Sun part of configure).

Applied - do you have an AIX 4.2 system to test this on as well?  I don't know
whether this will break on older versions.

BTW configure.in is the right file to edit in this case as configure is
generated from configure.in by autoconf.

sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
