1. there is config.cache in the package, with old paths inside,
configure buys it and make complains later

2. there are non-critical typos in configure.in, like the first line
after comments, what does it do there, and it is unfinished (no backtick
in the end). and also couple of times AC_ARG_WITH with second parameter
"   ", results in weird strings in the beginning of configure, bash
complains, but it doesnt do any harm.

3. in Makefile.in (i had to do autoconf myself to restore libmpeg3
detection) PREFIX is hard coded, should be PREFIX=@prefix@

after fixing all that i have the same old misbehaviour:
