configure does not correctly identify some items

I have already worked around this problem by editing config.h after
running configure, so the purpose of this note is informational only
(can't fix it if you don't know about it).

I am building the lame-3.99.5 version of libmp3lame-0.dll for the purpose
of including it in the latest FFmpeg build (upgrading both from older
versions).  I am using a MinGW environment on Windows 7.  After running
configure, the build failed for the following reasons:

        - bad typedefs for signed/unsigned 32/64 bit integers (e.g.,

        - did not detect presence of strchr, memcpy, and limits.h

The build worked after I edited config.h so that it contained the

        typedef int int32_t;
        typedef long long int64_t;
        typedef unsigned int uint32_t;
        typedef unsigned long long uint64_t;

        #define HAVE_STRCHR 1
        #define HAVE_MEMCPY 1
        #define HAVE_LIMITS_H 1

I was under the impression that the whole point of using the configure
script was to avoid having to make manual edits like this.  Am I missing
something here?

Please let me know if you want more detailed information.  Thanks for
