Several megs is a *lot* for a non-core dependency.

Fink's /sw/bin/init.sh is pretty comprehensive about revealing /sw.
I don't think special cases should be needed.

Now *that's* a bug.

I'm not in favour of opening up the guts of configure even more, but
whatever lack of propagation of flags you are seeing is certainly a bug.

Could you give a summary of the environment to cause the failure?
(Sorry if you already have, I've been very busy lately, and unable to follow
