Hmmm, configure should test this with this program

#include <stdio.h>
  FILE *f=fopen("conftestval", "w");
  if (!f) exit(1);
  fprintf(f, "%d\n", sizeof($1));

can you please look into config.log to see why this program failed.
(zlib does not appear here).

Will do so.

Using rand() is just a kludge to let it compile until we have a RNG; but
I can check for it.

I'm new to autoconf; I used another make scheme in the past, which worked
quite different.   Hmmm, I don't see a attachment ...
