Fails at the ./prebuild.sh in the unix/ directory. This is both on FreeBSD 10.2
and Debian testing with the official stable 3.7.0.0 build. On both systems I
get:

configure.ac:302: the top level
+ cat ./configure
+ sed -e 's,configure.gnu  --help=recursive,& --srcdir=$ac_srcdir,g' -e 's,\(cd
\)\($ac_\)\(pop\)*\(dir\),\1"\2\3\4",g' -e
's,$am_aux_dir/missing,\\"$am_aux_dir\\"/missing,g'
+ mv -f ./configure.tmp ./configure
+ chmod +x ./configure
+ rm -f -r ./autom4te.cache
sed: ./Makefile.in: No such file or directory

So, it's not generating Makefile.in for some reason.
