But it should not find the above variables then and should not try use
them (or use local static placeholders). So, the question is - why
configure sets HAVE_BOOLCODES and others at all? I believe, we finally
cleaned this up ... are you sure you are using the lates CVS?

That's workaround; still, the actual bug is different IMHO.
