Okay, so I did this. Then ran ./configure yet again.

In config.log [after apt-get install hpijs]
./configure [again]

on debian

config.status:713: creating Makefile
config.status:896: executing depfiles commands
configure:23118: configuring in prnt/hpijs
configure:23235: running /bin/sh './configure' --prefix=/usr
'--prefix=/usr' --cache-file=/dev/null --srcdir=.
configure:23240: error: /bin/sh './configure' failed for prnt/hpijs

Hence, it appears that after apt-get install hpijs there is no change in
status. Did you happen to see Bill's suggestion?
