The configure script tries to remove w32/Makefile, which fails:

$ sh ./configure --prefix=/opt

configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating Makefile
config.status: creating glob/Makefile
config.status: creating po/Makefile.in
config.status: WARNING:  'po/Makefile.in.in' seems to ignore the
--datarootdir setting
config.status: creating config/Makefile
config.status: creating doc/Makefile
config.status: creating w32/Makefile
rm: cannot remove `w32/Makefile': Read-only file system
config.status: error: could not create w32/Makefile

If it's not thought to be important to support this use case and/or there's
some question as to why someone would want to do this on a read-only
file-system, I can articulate further if desired.
