I recommend you use something newer than 4.2.4.
Hack the top-level Makefile.am file. If you are doing this for a
commercial project, you should already have a mechanism for applying
patch files to existing source tarballs, once you have this figured out.
If not, it's easy enough to track changes to a single file.
But unless compile is Cirtical for yuo, it can be Useful to at least
*have* those other tools available.
