The OS/2 is positively not working after the port to automake. However, it 
should be fairly straight forward to "handmake" the information equivalent
to what automake would add. This is essentially what the sysdep.h file is
all about. On unix it includes the config.h file generated by configure and
on windows and mac, it sets the macro definitions manually.
