 For now I've just taken what was in the pkg previously

 When I try
 ./configure --build build
 I get
 configure: * check for host type
 checking build system type... Invalid configuration `build': machine `build' 
 configure: error: /usr/pkg/bin/bash ./build-aux/config.sub build failed

 The --build command line switch is predefined by GNU autoconf
 to specify the machine/OS the software is built on.

 I might do so later. Perhaps next week.
