Description andrewem 1999-10-28 17:03:25 EDT
sp/configure.in runs AC_C_CONST and AC_C_INLINE, which are C
specific tests, after setting AC_LANG_CPLUSPLUS

const and inline are NOT optional in C++, though they are in
C, hence the _C_ in their names!

The fix is to remove these tests from configure.in and run
autoconf before re-packaging.

fixed in 1.0.9-5 and later.
