Because that is not "the state" to which I am refering. We had a
long discussion about this back in March
The problem is fragments like
cat >> confdefs.h <<\EOF
#define HAVE_FMODF 1
instead of using
echo "#define HAVE_FMODF 1" >> confdefs.h
The thread discussed solutions, but nothing ever was implemented.
