Paul, would you be willing to try this? I don't think much work should be 
needed (famous last words) other than the tag & uploading it,
given the target audience  - that is, I wouldn't worry over testing it 
extensively given that's the point of the RC for now, and that can always be 
before a subsequent RC or final release.

Autoconf is currently one of the big barriers to making more progress on the C 
porting front, unfortunately and trying to explain
to upstreams that some issues are ok-but-will-be-fixed-later ends up being 

If you're not able to look into an RC, I can try ship a snapshot in Gentoo 
which won't be generally available to users, but
ask for eager users to test, but that won't help with other distros or 
interested parties.

I'm happy to do the work if someone can tell me what needs doing, as well.

I'm sorry to ask directly, it's just that it keeps coming up in discussions 
with upstreams & package maintainers.
