Bug description:  ./configure: "-lc-client" not in EXTRA_LIBS

For some reason, "-lc-client" disappears from $LIBS before it has a chance
to get copied onto $EXTRA_LIBS.  As a result, this produces the famous
"undefined symbol: mxdriver" error that you've been having problems with in
the past.

Yes, I have the library file.  Yes, I've included the --with-imap switch. 
Yes, I've spend close to 5 hours on this problem.  And no, I'm not a
dumbass.  Despite popular opinion among the PHP developers, this is --NOT--
a user configuration error!  This --IS-- a bug!  There is a problem
somewhere in the ./configure program.

Somewhere between the LIBS statement for c-client (line 22880) and the
EXTRA_LIBS = LIBS statement (line 55067), the -lc-client statement
disappears or (more possibly) the statement was never there in the first
place.  However, all of the Kerberos switchs DO exist, such as
"-lgssapi_krb5 -lkrb5 -lk5crypto -lcom_err".

My guess: Either there is a missing c-client case block near line
22679-22786 and/or c-client is not included if the user does NOT use the
--with-imap-ssl switch (which is my case).

Being a GNU developer myself, I can understand the need to dismiss most
"bugs" as user error, but I can assure you that this is not the case.
