Hm?  I've always found the error messages in config.log.  I've diagnosed
probably a dozen of these build failures from config.log output; usually
it's a straightforward compiler error that points to a missing include,
structure, or the like.  Or is this an issue with a current Linux that
causes this to stop working?
