applied to blead as e3c125ffa5002b0ab2c402446f4e5b2850b634aa, and
cherry-picked into maint.

Is there any reason this patch isn't suitable for blead too?

applied to blead as c533d96e5f6c9e94d3d34f6ff54accc877705220, and
cherry-picked into maint.

Note that Merijn is currently on vacation for two weeks, and I know very
little about Configure nor AIX; but since the patch affects only
hints/, I guess the risk is localised. So I've pulled it into maint
for now.

Well, the individual patches were compressed, which meant they weren't
easily viewable within an email, and 'git am' didn't seem to recoginise
within the mailbox, so I have to individually save, them, uncompress them
,then 'git am' them. But I'm not much or of an expert on 'git am' myself
(most of my maint stuff is vie 'fgit chery-pick', so I could be doing
something wrong.

Never do today what you can put off till tomorrow.
