I found why configure works till last week.
In old 'configure.ac'
at line 755, AC_ARG_WITH([jikes],...[JIKES="$withval"],...)
at line 772, JIKES="$JIKESPROG +Pno-switchcheck +Pno-shadow +E"
at line 784, JIKES="$with_jikes"
so if I specify '--with-jikes=something' the something is interpreted
as 'the jikes compiler command name AND argument to it'.
at line 775, ... JIKESPROG="$withval"...
at line 805, JAVA_COMPILER="$JIKESPROG +Pno-switchcheck +Pno-shadow +E"
so even with '--with-jikes=something', the something is interpreted
as 'the name of compiler options are given by configure'.
Shall we add autogenerated compiler options or treat as old version?
