I guess dpck-buildpackage runs autoconf to rebuild the configure script. By 
this, your changes in configure will be overwritten.
Oh, by the way, I tried building it on sid, and it works.  :)

yup, sounds like autoconf is run by the package build script

The configure script is created my autoconf, reading the configure.in file. I 
guess you need to set the check somewhere next to all those acl test code. I 
can't really help you there, as this is the most complex configure.in I've 
ever seen.

Future looks spotty.  You will spill soup in late evening.
