Yay! However, the autoconfigury in this pre1 release is busted. Most of
the --enable-xxx and -disable-xxx switches don't work.

In configure.ac for the AC_ARG_ENABLE switches, the developer has used
$withval when he should be using $enableval. This is covered in the
Autoconf manual.

I've sent a bug report upstream.
