Thanks Marcel,

your reports help to locate the problems.

Unfortunately I don't think this issue (broken auto* setups) can have a
remarkable priority, as cvs data implies no consitency guarantee,
and the developers are very busy with Coda itself. The only way to make a
progress here would be if you or someone else volunteers to support the
scripts. I (an interested user like yourself) have no such possibility.

Surely at the public release time there will be working configure scripts.
For the time being try to use workarounds - it looks like you manage to
compile anyway, by trial and error.

Cvs is meant for adventurous souls, so we are mostly on our own :)
