[lug] Disable Autoconf Version Check?

It just says my version of make is too old. It wants something like 3.7 minimum, but I'm using 4.0...it's mistakenly thinking 4.0 is old when it is really too new.

autoconf dumps a ton of information into log files, which should tell you why your version check isn't working.

Also, after you updated the configure.in did you regenerate the configure script? Just double check the simple things...
