I suppose -multimedia@ isn't the best place to whine about configure,
but I'm going to anyway.  :-)

Configure is nice when it works, but when it breaks (which happens
all too often), it is a major pain to figure out what is going on
behind the scenes and find a fix, even a kludgy fix.  Is there a
How-to-debug-configure-for-dummies out there somewhere?  Or is
configure intended to be the replacement source of frustration now 
that we have postfix and can avoid beating our heads against
