Hi, I've used the following patch

First because re-defining strtoi is a problem, and it's named Strtoi
Second because that is the sole use of strtoi that isn't Strtoi.
Third, use = instead of ==, which is bash-specific.

Additionally I must note there are a number of tests in configure.ac which
do not append x to the beginning of the string.
I have been told that it may result in undefined behaviour in some shells when
the string is empty.

If you wish, I will provide a patch for this as well.
