Yes!  I certainly do agree with you on this point.  However, sometimes
this can't be avoided in the case of inlined functions (e.g. C++).  It
isn't always feasible, particularly in terms of performance, to always
keep function implementations hidden within the library.  One could
argue that the inlined functions shouldn't depend on the output of
configure.  On that point, I would agree.  If you had a solution for
this problem then I'd be eternally grateful! :-)
