This patch is wrong as-is (ARGS not used, -lt 2 should be -lt 1),
I'll send a fixed version later with more comments.

The logic behind ARGS is just to keep the previous behaviour right,
it can be removed later once every callsite would have been fixed.
This is because I didn't test on macosx, and to be fair I tested on
iOS but probably completely messed up the actual testing since it
wouldn't even work, I'm not sure how it resulted in a correct build
back then.

The core idea of this change is to not use export anymore, and be
sure the configuration we are using is kept for later build, mostly
because I usually use make to build and it breaks when there is a
reconf and some files depending on the function where the detection
is overriden here is recompiled. As a side-effect, since I've
integrated the current buildsystem in some XCode project generation
tool, which will be using make, it prevents compilation from this
XCode project to fail randomly when it triggers a reconfiguration.

I hope this is clearer.
