If that worked it would be great.  I already have a configure.xxxx to record 
the arguments for each of several different versions of ntpd that I build and 
test so it would be simple to include that parameter in the one particular 
case where I need it.

Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, it doesn't do anything.

It gets recorded in config.status but the Makefiles are the same.

Does anybody know if or how that is supposed to work?

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
