I forgot to motivate the change. Configure runs config.guess to figure 
out what kind of machine it's running on. That file in turn uses the C 
preprocessor to figure out if it's 32 or 64 bit. If we don't setup 
devkit before running config.guess, the preprocessor might not be 
available and configure will think the mac is a 32 bit machine.
