Peter and Eric;

Thanks for letting me know about autoconf 2.63's odd behavior on OS X.  I will 
attempt to reproduce the error, hopefully with 100% failure.  Thanks for 
continuing to follow up on this issue.

I also saw a similar failure on Mac OS X 10.5, but when I tried again,
everything passed, third time, everything passed. I did not report this
to Apple, as I could not reproduce it.
