Right, I hoped that at least gpgv is availabale on all major platforms
by default.  It is the case for most Linux distributions.  I print a
warning now.

I can't see why you need automake or autoconf for building.  You need it
only if you build from GIT.  I just removed autoconf and automake from
my machine and the speedo build works as expected.

With no access to an OS X mahcine it is hard for me to figure out why the
configure checks fail.  I'd appreciate any help.

Well, this change is of course the reason why you need automake.

However, I am still puzzled why you need to add init.o.  It is already
included in libcommon.a and the functions from libcommon.a don't use
functions from init.o.  Can you provide a build log again without the
above patch?  I would also like to see the libcommon.a
libcommon_a-init.o and the main object file of a failing test program
(tar up, gzip and send to me by PM).
