With all due respect, I have had too much trouble with Autotools that I
cannot say anything good about it. Every problem I have with projects using
Autotools is with the build system. This is a big compliment to the projects
themselves, as they get their big bunch of code right so it works nicely on
Windows. I meant no insult, I was just making an observation.

And if you would have read the actual email, you would have noticed that I
only used "--build" (because the auto*tools* are used incorrectly by GMP),
"--host" (which should be sufficient) and the optional "--enable-cxx", which
was crucial to me finding this problem. You probably mistook the provided
"gcc -v" output for my configure line.
