Remove the SSLCERT defs and the network defs from configure proper.
Move them to defs-default. Allow for per-user defs files to use . defs-default in them. I do this by temporarly changing the path when evaluating the defs file, adding the directory where the defs file lives. So, you can do this in your personal defs file, whic saves on a lot of typing! . defs-default TBOPSEMAILfirstname.lastname@example.org TBLOGSEMAILemail@example.com blah blah blah I also changed all of the *local* defs file to use the above format.
