mac platform problem with configure in 7.10.3 release candidate 3

The hq rc3 mac binary build is where I am reporting the problem.
I also reproduced it on a mac just now on the hq rc3 src build which I
guess is not surprising.
I believe I encountered this in previous 7.10.3 builds but failed to report
