Looks like popen() function may not work.
This occurs on my i386-native system when i try to run autoconf on it. I try to build subversion, which doesn't have configure file bundled. It is suggested that i generate it myself. Unfortunately autoconf (downloaded from aros-archives) fails with "popen failed" when it tries to run external command (AC_INIT macro in configure.ac)
IMHO popen() should not depend on some extended DOS function. I beleive this can be done by standard Open() call on a special handler.
