It is already the case. The Makefile defaults to "ar" and does not even
contain any mention of "gar". The configure script checks for both:

configure.ac:AC_CHECK_TOOLS(AR, [gar ar], :)

My guess is that you ran the configure script on a machine where gar is
present, and then used the result on a machine where it isn't.

Normally, at configure time you should see this:

checking for ar... ar

You actually don't need to run the configure script, the Makefile runs
fine without it. Delete config.mak.autogen to cancel the effect of
