=-) Well, eventually it did work with the root level configure.
The reason I aimed at that one was that the FAQ told me to go for it.
Having instructions and "the real life situation" not match each other makes

A simple README and/or a Makefile could've helped a lot.
I'll be investigating gdb and the possibilities with this dll.
