Not true AFAICT (looking at Fedora Core 5 when I say this). Don't have
access to a more recent machine for testing at this point (I can correct
these things once I get CVS access for this package).

Here is what I get on FC5:

+ ./configure --host=i686-redhat-linux-gnu --build=i686-redhat-linux-gnu
--target=i386-redhat-linux --program-prefix= --prefix=/usr
--exec-prefix=/usr --bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin
--sysconfdir=/etc --datadir=/usr/share --includedir=/usr/include
--libdir=/usr/lib --libexecdir=/usr/libexec --localstatedir=/var
--sharedstatedir=/usr/com --mandir=/usr/share/man
--infodir=/usr/share/info CXX=g++ CC=gcc F77=gfortran --enable-static=no
--enable-shared=yes --disable-mpi

Fair point. Much more important to note the changes once we get to the
point of a released package, of course.

Wonder if you might be prepare to mark this 'review +' now (if you are
able)? If not, perhaps it would be better to continue this discussion on
