The configure script probes the target system for the exdistence of
header files and library functions that might or might not exist, and
then produces a config.h header file and Makefile files in various
subdirectories of the distribution that build the program(s) given
the detected functionality.

For example, if the library doesn't have the strncasecmp function, the
symbol HAVE_STRNCASECMP will be left undefined in config.h, and the
Makefile's will be made to compile and link the version of strncasecmp
supplied with the package.
