I've added a systemtap "AUTOTARGETS" package, but the configure is
failing because the configure script is trying to check for existence
of files.

AFAICT, the fix for that is to pass some environment variables to the
configure script that will short-circuit the file existence checks.

Something like this:

  ac_cv_file__usr_include_nspr=no \
  ac_cv_file__usr_include_nspr4=no \
  ac_cv_file__usr_include_nss=no \
  ac_cv_file__usr_include_nss3=no \
  ac_cv_func_malloc_0_nonnull=yes ./configure

How do you pass environment variables to the configure script when
