  "configure" is an auto-generated file.  Like a ".o" file.  It will
change every time it's re-generated.

  The server isn't a collection of random patches for different systems.
 Asking someone to track this patch *manually* is not a good engineering

  I'm willing to integrate the changes into the server source control.
That *is* the best place for them.  However, the changes have to be
updated to fix the above problems.  Otherwise, they:

 a) have to tracked manually on a Wiki somewhere


 b) they will break builds on every non-GCC and non-Solaris system.
