This will happen if you have CDPATH set, for example.

The more normal solution is to have the configure script reset CDPATH to
something more normal (or remove it).  A change like this was already
made in the latest autoconf sources, I believe.

PS. Note that changing configure is never appropriate: the configure
    script is generated by the autoconf package from (you
    didn't really think anyone sat down and _wrote_ a configure script,
    did you :)
