This is a bug report generated with the help of perlbug 1.36 running 
under perl 5.10.0.

[Please enter your report here]

I downloaded the source file package 
"". The included script 
"Configure" asked me some questions for program locations and 
directories while reasonable default values like "/usr/bin/perl" and 
"/usr/local" were provided.

I chose some options and tried a compilation. I decided to adjust a few 
options and run the configuration script again.
I was surprised that a couple of dots were presented as new default 
values that I did not change before in the previous run. I noticed that 
the dots were recorded in the file "". So I replaced the dots 
in assignments for variables like "binexp" and "prefix" with 
understandable text by an editor.
I saw that the unexpected dots notation reappeared after each 
reconfiguration try. Are there any open issues for the build script
