 Well, I'm pleased that you didn't fall into the trap I accidentally
set by putting '2>&1' after the pipe to tee.

 Also, configure won't report an error if it gets as far as creating
the Makefiles - but the results of the various tests which configure
runs might be useful iff we can find out what is reported for the
error during 'make'.  First we need to identify that message.

 How big is 'mymakelog' ?  If it is under 50K, please attach it.  If
it is bigger, please compress it with gzip and attach the .gz
version.  My own log [ configure, make, install ] was 259k, but
gzipped to 22k so you should be able to attach one or the other
without hitting the list's limits.

das eine Mal als Tragödie, dieses Mal als Farce
