"$ ./configure --help" command doen't show all the configuration alternatives that a user has when wants to compile from source. For example, TBDIR variable is not listed in "$ ./configure --help" and the only solution is to watch to the Makefile generated after the configuration process to see if there are other variables.

    Hi,

    The configure script is not generated by the standard autoconf/automake setup, so I don't think --help is appropiate. I will however look at changing the configure script to show the information.
