Hi Sami,

Yes, better on consistency.  But as a "user", the autogen script "feels" 
incomplete/wrong when a get a bash error message followed by your error 
message.  They both really say the same thing and thus are redundant.

Also, perhaps that script and configure should fail if they're not run from the 
user's current directory.  Otherwise the Makefiles and .deps directories get 
misplaced after configure thus making a build impossible.

I noticed too that the install directories still carry the 750 permissions.  Do 
you feel that they should be 755? 

Lastly, would you also consider the small patch below?  Is just properly names 
a program and eliminates a 'cd' since that wouldn't survive script end.
