I investigated a bit more and actually the problem relies on CLISP's
configure: upstream added the support for autoconf --build in version
2.45 . So the ideal fix was to backport the upstream one, not only
for configure but various files .
However, this seems to be more pain than expected and it's IMHO an
upstream bug: tagged as this and forwarded at .

 other than the necessary files, I corrected the documentation, too:
