Right - that check is still in my updated patch.
I think the confusion may stem from the fact that Tom and I used the
word "runtime" to refer to the ac_run_check thing, because it is
checking something about the runtime environment (namely, whether
posix_fadvise works or not) at configure-time.
In any event, it seems as though we are all on the same page.
