Item12368: Use of uninitialized value in lc at /bin/configure line 334, on windows.

Priority: Urgent
Current State: Closed
Released In: 1.1.7
Target Release: patch
Applies To: Engine
Component: Configure
Branches: Release01x01 trunk
Reported By: GeorgeClark TimotheLitt
Waiting For: GeorgeClark
Last Change By: GeorgeClark
On my Strawberry perl test system, this code executes but returns a defined empty string instead of undef. So with the patch, configure shows 'n/a' in the groups, but without the patch, it's just empty, and there are no errors.

Re-opened to correct trunk fix - parallel code in the Engine daemon.

No change to 1.1.7, where the Engine daemon does not exist.
