luit-1.0.1 source inconsistency

Hi all!

I don't actually know if this's the list I should send this message to 
but I hope it is.

Having done a little research of configure script and parser.h file I 
(seem to) found an inconsistency:

configure's --with-localealiasfile option defines the LOCALEALIASFILE 
constant that's used in the -D option passed to compiler 

In its turn parses.h tries to use the LOCALE_ALIAS_FILE constant so that 
it seems the developer assumed these two constants (macros) to be the 
same (the _same_, not _equal_).

Having taken into account this behaviour I came to conclusion that 
configure's --with-localealiasfile doesn't influence anything.

So my questions are following:

1. Is this really a bug or did I miss something?

2. In my Gentoo I have the /usr/share/locale/locale.alias file. Is it 
what should be passed to --with-localealias and what luit package 
should use or does luit use (and possibly install) _another_ 
locale.alias file that should be 
in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/locale/locale.alias as it defined in parser.h?

Nothing but perfection
