No, I think the configuration script is fine with this one exception. It  
should not be reconfiguring the system, it's that simple , no need to  
extrapolate to rediculous lengths or to do hand configure.

I just emerged wine-0.9 and it did not show this behaviour.

I was replying to Dustin's suggestion that this kind of incorrect  
behaviour is fine because it can be called "user-friendly" , which is not  
an appropriate arguement on Linux.

I suggest we kill this discussion the point has been made.
