Can't you imagine all sorts of scenarios where a configure script, which
assumes normal unix linking of external symbols, becoming confused if
--auto-import wasn't on.

I applied the following patch to the sources:

Trying this on Windows, I can see that it is on by default there.  I
guess this must have gotten wiped out in my sandbox when I rebuilt
binutils for linux.  Don't know how that happened.

So, nevermind about the question about turning it on by default.

The real question is whether this should be on in CVS.  Obviously
it should be.
