While build dir name contains "yes", and compile with
producing debugging information (-g), the configure failed,
here is the reproduce steps:

$ mkdir dir_name_contain_yes
$ cd dir_name_contain_yes/
$ git clone https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/screen.git
$ cd screen/src/
$ ./autogen.sh
$ CPPFLAGS="-g" ./configure

configure: checking for Solaris 2.x...
configure: checking BSD job jontrol...
- you don't have jobcontrol
configure: checking setresuid...
configure: checking setreuid...
configure: checking seteuid...
configure: checking execvpe...
configure: checking select...
configure: checking select with -lsocket -linet -lsocket -lnsl -lkstat -lnet -lnsl...
configure: error: !!! no select - no screen
