vigor @0.0.16: checking for preserve directory... Fatal error: no writeable preserve directory found.

Description

vigor fails to configure:

checking for preserve directory... Fatal error: no writeable preserve directory found.

[b703ff70c69e93aa6ec38f23132e87bdc8f2760c/macports-ports] attempted to apply a workaround from the nvi port for this problem, but it doesn't seem to work here.

Note that nvi's configure script was generated with autoconf 2.61 while vigor's was generated with autoconf 2.13. I recall not being able to figure out how to override cache vars in autoconf 2.13. Something changed in newer versions of autoconf to make that easier/possible.

Yeah, might be best to autoreconf if possible.

Debian has some patches that we may be able to borrow: https://sources.debian.org/patches/vigor/0.016-28/
