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.

Hi Chris!  Wow, that is great that 2.62 was released a few weeks ago.
The previous release was 2.61 from November 2006 :(.  But we aren't
using 2.13.  Our configure.ac has:

AC_PREREQ(2.13)

But that just means that we *insist* on at least version 2.13.  But we
actually use 2.61 for the distributed tarballs (with much newer
config.sub/config.guess files):

flog~/nmap>find . -name configure -exec egrep '^# Generated by GNU' '{}' \;
# Generated by GNU Autoconf 2.61.
# Generated by GNU Autoconf 2.61.
# Generated by GNU Autoconf 2.61.
# Generated by GNU Autoconf 2.61.
# Generated by GNU Autoconf 2.61 for PCRE 7.6.
# Generated by GNU Autoconf 2.61.
# Generated by GNU Autoconf 2.61.
flog~/nmap>

Cheers,
