It appears that on FreeBSD, the utmpx log file for current logins is
/var/run/utx.active but our configure script looks for a file names
utmpx. Creating a symlink before compiling appeared to work.

I don't claim to be an autoconf expert but the following patch does at
least allow configure to find it.
