It sounds as though Apple's environment executes this in a zsh that's
aliased "cd" to echo the new cwd after chdir. The fix should be to
ditch such aliases before running, or else to force execution under a
real sh, or whatever zsh-y thing will enforce proper behavior.
Well, or to modify the autoconf stuff to use a chdir instead of a cd.
I'm sort of curious... does this problem arise while configuring as
root, or as admin (or as a user)?
