Frankly, I am too disinterested in reading autoconf's NEWS file two
years after the fact.  My working assumption is that if the packaged
"configure" file does not fit the bill, the developer will need the
minimum required autoconf version.  I currently have 2.69 here.  With
the same commit that bumped the requirement up to 2.68, I also added
silent-rules but I haven't commented nor do I remember if there are any
special features I am using.  Feel free to kill the PREREQ line and see
if it works for your.

Uh.  It's trying to look up the user ID from the user name.  Is that
before or after the run_as_user=news addition to config?

Are the parent directory permissions/uid/gid suitable such that the
"news" user (or whatever you configure) has the necessary permissions?

Not sure if that's a consequential error.
