If you start adding things like that, also consider all the other
possibilities of configure being wrong. I hinted at one of them a couple of
weeks back, I think. (Somehow, 'last saturday', when I headed for London for
the Apachecon, feels like about two months ago :P) It's perfectly possible
for configure to be able to run gcc, gcc to be able to create working
binaries, but every check for a function or datatype failing because the
more 'involved' include files are missing. This is easy to do on Linux,
(removing /usr/src/linux, for instance) but not impossible on other systems
