   Did you notice in the Makefile at 082-autoconf the line
	@echo "export MAKEFLAGE=\"-j3\"" >> envars
   You have selected to optimize the build and autoconf does not like 
parallel builds.
   Add 'autoconf' to the BLACK_LIST in /optimize/opt_conf or do not 
enable optimization.

  (you should think of downloading the latest svn copy of jhalfs.. it is 
a little easier to use and cleaner internally)
