You would be moving away from feature-based configuration. Can't you
interrogate sfio for its capabilities regardless of version?

Would it be possible for configure to probe for the value of SFIO_VERSION
and change the line

    useperlio=define d_sfio=define uselargefiles=define usesocks=undef

to report the 8 digit sfio version if sfio used rather than "define"?
(as now reporting undef if sfio not used or not found)
