And as Benjamin wrote in the response to PR 6776, this is from a standard
autoconf macro, AC_PROG_LN_S, which can be 'ln' or 'ln -s' or (depending

problems, please report it to the autoconf maintainers.
If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater
than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek
not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. - Samuel Adams
