Hm... This script gives correct output for me. And I guess John have 
checked it and
it worked for him too. Probably we have different autoconfs. Anyway, I 
see your problem now.

Ok. I never used that script myself :)

Ok, now I see it! :)

Yes, I noticied it first time :) This was trivial enough for me change 
and I have understood it
without explanations :)

First of all, thanks for your patches! I really appreciate your help! 
The reason why I am asking
these stupid questions is that I want to understand what exactly I am 
doing. And I am really sorry
that these are *stupid* questions :( And enchancements are good. But 
don't forget the old
engineering rule: if it works, *DON'T* touch it :) IMHO, this rule 
applies to software engineering
may be even more than to traditional mechanical engineering :)

Patch applied and commited! Thanks again!
