That is pretty old code from 2007.  I do not remember any details; it is
possible that this is based on Uli Drepper's original paper.  it was
originally implemented for Libgcrypt - but the code is the same.

If the conftests runs into an error, it is dumped to the config.log.  If
I want to debug such things, I usually have the configure script to stop
right after the test.
