Try 0.1l :-(

That's a little bit hard because both cvs and gssapi are quite bad at
reporting errors in some useful way.  I'm working on fixing that.

I think that autoconf runs sed in several invocations to avoid
problems with seds that have low limits.

Yes, it looks like it doesn't absolutify .. correctly.  A work-around
might be to give an absolute path to configure.

Yes, that's exactly what's happening.  We should either teach testit
about `--version' or do some automake tricks.

Yes, some libraries are missing here when building with shared
libraries.  (They're not actually needed, but...).  I have fixed that
in the current code, but since the test cases test against the new
code anyway and won't work correctly in 0.1* I won't send you any
