Congratulations on finding the first problem with 1.6.0.  The configure
script is not setting ENABLE_ALARM_SHELL_DANGER because of a typo.

To workaround the problem try the following steps
1) run ./configure with whatever options you normally include
2) edit the generated file "config.h"
   Change the commented line to read '#define ENABLE_ALARM_SHELL_DANGER 1'
   Save and close the file
3) run make normally

Those steps worked for me and I have patched CVS.
