  It is a little sad, that as soon as one reports an error based on a
  blender made by the configure/autoconf system he is said to try it
  first with the original Makefile system. But no one seems to able to
  explain that to us ordinary humans.

  From this point of view, it will become more and more difficult
  (impossible) for non-deep-inside-Blender-source-people to support
  the team with valuable and reasonable bug reports.

  Kind regards,
  (slightly frustrated)
