This fix makes all the comments/info line-up correctly when you type configure --help
Patch is applied to configure.in, and will not affect configure until you run autoconf to make a new configure file.

Probably better not to apply this patch to the git, because I am reworking the configure system and anything that messes with the configure file that is checked in the archive is going to make it harder to maintain my Mercurial patch queue if I want to refresh my sources.
As for things lining up, that is handled automatically by recent autoconf, so the problem will simply go away with the rework.
The Fedora patch (ID: 3547798) was just an update, but the right place to fix it permanently is in configure.in
...since the Fedora patch was going to modify configure.in anyways, it seemed like a good time to introduce additional configure.in fixes. :-)
Leave this patch (and the Fedora patch) open (as reference) until after you figure-out what you need to fix/modify.
Just as agreed.
OK, Barry moved from Mercurial patch queues to GitHub.
