Re: GNU Autoconf progress

Work on the new autoconf system going quite well.  The
following platforms have been tested to varying degrees:
	Debian Linux
	FreeBSD 2.2.5
	FreeBSD 3.0

We'd like to had your platform to the list!

	Added --with-thread=manual to allow thread options

We especially need folks to run platform tests!


PS: I made a quick snapshot for those without AnonCVS.
