For ac_nonexistent.h it is checking for the proper error return.  The 
file is non-existent.  That's not your problem.

You need to check the host system requirements in Section iii of the 
Preface.  Hint:

       mawk -v commonpagesize=0x1000 -f conftest.awk
	   conftest.ph > conftest.cps

mawk: conftest.awk: line 16: function strtonum never defined
