This won't work.  I tried it yesterday.  If you want to bring chill's 
makefile fragment into autoconfigury, you will have to rewrite large 
chunks of it, which are currently set up using some special sed rules 
somewhere.  (I got so lost trying to unravel it all yesterday that this is 
when I just gave up and disabled nls entirely.)

I think chill needs bringing properly into the autoconf make system.  That 
would solve a lot of the problems, but it probably isn't a trivial job.
