I can't seem to reproduce this exactly, but on Solaris I have

checking for xmkmf... /usr/X/bin/xmkmf
/home/bs/sfesys/sysadm/export/common.alias: No such file or directory
/home/bs/sfesys/sysadm/export/common.alias: No such file or directory
/home/bs/sfesys/sysadm/export/common.alias: No such file or directory
/home/bs/sfesys/sysadm/export/common.alias: No such file or directory

This was with the 2.0.0 sources, so it isn't new. The culprit appears to be constructions like

  if test "`which ${cc}`" = "`which ${CC}`"; then     shlib_ldflags=`${srcdir}/tools/GETMAKEVAL SHLIBLDFLAGS`     cpicflags=`${srcdir}/tools/GETMAKEVAL PICFLAGS`   fi

in configure.ac. I guess we shouldn't really use "which" at all...
