Configure updates
Message ID:
I've committed today two changes to Configure

1. Disable -Uuseperlio

2. Detect size and signedness of st_ino in stat (for TonyC)

I did *NOT* update, as I have no idea what to put in
there and nothing is probably better than something wrong.

What I also noted is that on 'make test_porting' a test started to fail
that I never saw before, and that affects mostly my work (assuming
noone else updates Configure and config_h.SH from the metaunits).

'make regen' does NOT update uconfig.h => it does not call
perl regen/ and that causes the test to fail:

 # Failed at porting/regen.t line 55
 #      got "config_h.SH"
 # expected ""

does it make sense to

a) include the required regen calls in 'make regen'
b) include dependencies in the makefile(s) to resolve these
c) something else

Whatever, I will have to make documentation notes in the metaconfig
branche regarding required actions, as this one was not yet on my agenda
