  I ran into something like this a while back, with 2.0.3.  I've got a
  patch for 2.0.3 (it complains, but works, with 2.0.5a) which enables
  the functionality.  Apparently the "dfree command" parameter is ignored
  if configure finds a reliable system call in the system...

  The patch should be applied to as clean a source tree as possible, from
  the root of the tarball (ie, where Manifest and WHATSNEW.txt are)

  Hope this helps!
