OK, I see.  I just read
and I would like to see the output of:

top_srcdir=$top_srcdir sh -x ./configure

That is, I'd like to see what shell commands that instance of
'./configure' is running.

This bug might be related to the bug that was fixed in:
but the evidence is pretty slim here, so I'd like to see more.

The slowness is a known problem and I think it is being worked on, but
I don't consider it to be a fatal objection.  There's a tradeoff
between speed and portability, and autoconf tries to be portable.

(You might find it a bit faster if you ran autoconf on a GNU/Linux box.  :-)

Sounds good, then.

By the way, that 'make check' problem indicates a potential problem
with cross-compiling only.  Native compilation should be fine.
