amanda-client port configure options not passing.

I'm having issues with the amanda-client port. At some point in the past months, when I install a new amanda-client it appears that the configure options are not passing correctly.

THe OS version doesn't seem to matter, 6.2, 7.0, 6.3 all appear to have the same issue. The specific behavior I'm encountering is that the amandad daemon on the client (yes it's backward) sees the incoming packets and logs them but does not respond. I'm wondering if it's an issue with the semi-recent autoconf upgrade.

As near as I can tell, the CONFIGURE_ARGS from the port makefile are not making into the configure script for the actual work files. Ideas?

>From the amandad debug file:

amandad:        CONFIGURE_COMMAND="'./configure' '--libexecdir=/usr/local/libexec/amanda' '--with-amand
mp' '--disable-libtool' '--prefix=/usr/local' '--with-user=operator' '--with-group=operator' '--with-gn
/local/bin/gtar' '--without-server' '--prefix=/usr/local' '--build=i386-portbld-freebsd6.2'"


amandad:        CONFIGURE_COMMAND="'./configure' 'freebsd6.3'"
