No. What is good for mp3lame (and vorbis, and ogg, and theora) should be 
good for libgsm. And a configure that tries to be smart is a recipe for 
disaster (if it werent we would be autotooled all the way...) But since 
the broken stuff is actually the make install in the gsm source distro, 
maybe configure could issue a message to the effect that gsm.h and 
libgsm.so are expected at such-and-such place.
