What exactly needs fixing for Debian/BSD systems?  I'd be more than glad to
provide a patch if I can figure out exactly what's broken.

On BSD, the biggest cause of pains is the fact that you guys don't distribute
the tarball with configure, etc already generated like most packages.  Just
doing this would solve a lot of headaches for folks that haven't messed with it
before on BSD.  IIRC, the only other thing that's broken on BSD is the missing
HAVE_ALLOCA_H check in tchars.h, but like you said you're ditching that.

The only other thing I know of off the top of my head that needs fixing
configure-wise, is a few checks that don't work as they should.  The one I know
for sure is the unicode check.  While --enable-unicode works as it should,
- --disable-unicode does not.
