Cool, glad it works.

There's nothing wrong really, just don't configure and go straight to
make install, but do a make inbetween. I believe the problem occurs
because bifcl is a temporary tool that is not installed (it's a
noinst_PROGRAMS target in automake lingo), and so going straight to make
install apparently doesn't fall back to building it first.

Note that there's never any guarantee that make install will also run
make for you. Leaving out 'make' is a bad habit, don't do it.
