I just noticed this error message during configure:

    checking whether gcc accepts -Olimit 1500... no
    checking whether gcc supports ParseTuple __format__... no
    checking whether pthreads are available without options... yes
    checking whether g++ also accepts flags for thread support... no
    checking for ANSI C header files... rm: conftest.dSYM: is a directory
    rm: conftest.dSYM: is a directory
    checking for sys/types.h... yes
    checking for sys/stat.h... yes
    checking for stdlib.h... yes
    checking for string.h... yes

Note the "rm: conftest.dSYM: is a directory".  This occurred a few times
during the configure process.  Didn't cause it to conk out, but is annoying.
