Sorry to say, but it doesn't work for me.
Althogh in the src/cmdline/Makefile, with the new script the TERMCAP_LIB 
entry is now -ltermcap instead of ./lib/termcap.a,
the make process does not succeed:

make[3]: Entering directory `/root/install/ifeffit-1.2.7/src/cmdline'
cc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I../..     -g -O2 -c iff_shell.c

.../../readline/libreadline.a -ltermcap 
-lfrtbegin -lg2c -lm -lgcc_s
cannot find -ltermcap
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Marco: Did you remove the symbolic link to /usr/lib before trying out 
Matt's new configure script???
