Yeah, I assumed something like that, given that nobody else has had this problem
(and I searched the archives & on google for quite a while before posting.)

But it's hard to debug, if I don't know how autoconf should even notice that
SVN_CONFIG_NICE is defined in build/ac-macros/svn-macros.m4 and that it should
load it. Os is "./build/ac-macros/" a directory that is automatically scanned for
m4 files to include? (strace showed that the directory isn't accessed at all.)

And the autohell suite works good enough for all of KDE, FlightGear and dozens
of other projects that I regularly compile from source. Hmm ... I'll go searching
then ...
