Use a real OS?   ;-)

Seriously, I do not like the idea of kluging configure to try to work
around an effect we don't understand.  If we do not understand the
problem then we can have zero confidence in any fix.  Let's find out
*why* this is happening, first, and then maybe a real solution will be
apparent.
