I'm trying to get speex compiling under windows using MinGW and Msys.

Sequence of events:
- unpack the speex distribution, then run:
- ./configure --disable-shared

then it happily goes off and spews out a load of output, untill finally, 
it spews out the "killer":

checking for sin in -lm... yes
checking for getopt_long... yes
checking for main in -lwinmm... yes
./configure: line 18753: syntax error near unexpected token `$FFT,'
./configure: line 18753: `AS_CASE($FFT,'

now, under linux this works fine and we can get it compiling, no issues...

versions of "stuff":

g++ --version
g++.exe (GCC) 3.4.5 (mingw-vista special r3)

  m4 --version
m4 (GNU M4) 1.4.13

autoreconf --version
autoreconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.56

$ automake --version
automake (GNU automake) 1.11

$ make --version
GNU Make 3.81

If there's anything else you guys need to know, please ask and I'll 
provide all other info! Sorry if this is a lame question, but I'm just 
getting started up with this ...
