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)? -- -D.
