When compiling nmap on OSX Leopard, I noticed some errors in the ./ 
configure output.

    rm: conftest.dSYM: is a directory

Searching around this is definitely a bug in autoconf on Leopard that  
is fixed in the latest 2.62 release.  nmap currently uses autoconf  
2.13, which was released in '99.

This error seems to be innocuous as a working nmap binary will still  
be compiled; however, I wonder if this autoconf bug exists could  
others?  Are there other benefits to using a later release of autoconf?

Would there be any interest in having the autoconf version used  
updated?  Is there anyone working on this already?
