I am glad you succeeded. I think that using GNU make is an absolute
requirement for building gnu projects where srcdir != objdir, because only gmake
supports VPATH, not Sun make. I have heard of problems with using a relative
instead of absolute path to configure on Sun before, but that was to do with
gcc; maybe it affects gdb as well.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
