i guess, "because the current directory is undefined"

anyhow, i noticed that i could perfectly well run a "configure"-script 
on osX (don't know which version though; i guess is 10.3; how can i get 
the osX-version from the command line??) that was made with autoconf on 

jamie, what was your problem again with using a linux-generated 
configure-script ?

if there is none, i'd like to check one in, which would enable people 
with the wrong version of autoconf-tools installed to compile Gem 
without installing the correct version.
