See Sage ticket 7832 (sorry, it won't let me link to this) for the original description. On FreeBSD apparently the following change is needed to get Singular to compile within Sage.

 for ac_prog in perl
 # Extract the first word of "$ac_prog", so it can be a program name with args.

According to the reporter, "It would be really great if these three lines could be removed from the configure file. As best as I can tell, they serve no purpose whatsoever for any OS." Please see the Sage ticket for further details.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

fixed: do not abort configure, if ar is not found This allows to define a different ar program but if none is found, you are on your own. Will be changed with the new version anyway.
