My login is 'eric.lee' on a machine I'm trying to ./configure node-jscoverage on

This seems to upset ./configure when it tries to create a C preprocessor define #DEBUG_eric.lee

because '.' is an invalid token for a preprocessor #{,un}define in C

configure log output:

using latest, i.e. 36b3ba5

workaround, just reassign $USER and re-run ./configure


 $ echo $USER
 $ USER = foobar
 $ ./configure
