This seems to be a problem with non bash shells expanding
string comparisons wrong.

ie we need to write "test x$foo = xyes" instead of 
"test $foo = yes" .

There are places (both in our and in gnulib - in 
particular the include_next module) where this is not happening.
I sent a patch to the gnulib list partially fixing the
problem, but unfortunately got a somewhat aggressive response
- "We cant apply patches that make things less reliable".

I don't know why they think it would do that. I've not 
found a sufficient length of time where I've been in the
correct mood to compose a reply yet.

     Does the same thing happen with the latest tarball from also?
     This is on OpenBSD, correct?
