It seems like making AC_CONFIG_FILES conditional may be a problem:

              [ifelse($1, , [libopts], [$1])])

If I try adding libopts/Makefile to AC_CONFIG_FILES in configure.ac so
that we always generate libopts/Makefile to support distclean and
dist, autoconf aborts because it was added twice.

I also noticed that the autogen binary on my system (FC19) generates
*-args files which reference symbols that do not exist in the bundled
libopts, causing a compile error when --enable-local-libopts is used.
So it looks like there is a dependency between the library version and
the autogen version.  This could be a problem for users building the
released tarball sources (with bundled *-args files) against the
libopts system library.

Yes, I can now successfully connect with both Android and iOS clients.
