I'm agree with you. As I stated in another message. This can be fixed by 
commenting two lines in file.
This is just a hack, but I can see an IF statment around these two lines that 
tests if we are running on Linux plateform. Or even a file 
generated without these two lines by the bootstrap process on Linux Plateforms.
