   Bzzt.  Please pass variable settings as arguments to configure:
     ./configure CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include

   not as environment variables.  It has the advantage that
     ./config.status --recheck

   (which may be triggered from a makefile) remembers such settings
   *even* if the variables in question are not marked as precious by  (CPPFLAGS is markes as precious by AC_PROG_CC, but
   better get the "new-since 10 years" way of doing it in your head
   now ;-)

True true! Sadly I encounter old programs that still don't grok this;
so it is kinda hardwired into my brain. :-(
