severity 579025 normal

I have forwarded your bug report to upstream's bug tracker at
sourceforge. I think this is an upstream bug and it should get fixed

Fixing it in Debian would mean an undesirable deviation from upstream
and force the sourceful uploads of 43 packages, including
re-autoconf'ing. I don't think it's worth the effort, since currently no
single package in Debian is actually affected by this bug (the default
prefix for autotools is /usr/local, so every package in Debian needs to
run configure with at least --prefix=/usr, which hides the bug) and the
workaround is quite simple (e.g. run configure with --prefix=/usr/local,
which is the default anyway). Hope you agree!
