Yes, I have seen that happen too. Did you use --with-includes and
--with-libs? I have seen cases where the actual compile of the software
honors those flags, but the configure tests don't. Is that what you are
seeing? I think config.log will show you the actual tests.

That is a little extreme. If we use -f, then you will have rm -if, and
I don't know how that is supposed to behave. Also, if there is an issue
with the rm, I think most will want to see it rather than have -f ignore
