OK, I had little experience with, didn't realize it would take the
same args I was used to feeding into configure.

To be honest, I heartily dislike all of the autotools, maybe that has something
to do with it.  Fixing any Make-based breakage has always been a breeze with me,
but fixing configure-based problems at best is hard, at worst takes forever.  I
am always far, far more concerned with how hard it is to fix things, than any
other concern.
