configure has become a bit of a monster, as it has monolithically grown over the ages. The reason it grew rather than being sensibly extended was simply an attempt to maintain it independent of the lib directory. The code is a mess, and needs splitting up and restructuring to support modern demands, such as pluggable checkers.

Removed "Being worked on" status because of empty "Waiting for" field.

Improved the reporting of missing modules to give some help; and refined the EXPERT so that if there is an error in an expert setting it shows in a normal view.

CC

Improved the code to avoid warning
