Some earlier Gimp-versions stated in the following in their configure-script:
Checking for intelligent life ... not found

Scorched3D's configure-script said:

checking for beer in -lfridge... no
Warning: No beer found in fridge!

Some day my nmap (don't remember which version, but was some 3.9x) said this:
Happy 8th Birthday to Nmap, may it live to be 108!

And the configure-script for nmap 3.93 has some nice ASCII-art:

  (  )   /\   _                 (
    \ |  (  \ ( \.(               )                      _____
  \  \ \  `  `   ) \             (  ___                 / _   \
 (_`    \+   . x  ( .\            \/   \____-----------/ (o)   \_
- .-               \+  ;          (  O                           \____
                          )        \_____________  `              \  /
(__                +- .( -'.- <. - _  VVVVVVV VV V\                 \/

  .    /./.+-  . .- /  +--  - .     \______________//_              \_______
  (__ ' /x  / x _/ (                                  \___'          \     /
 , x / ( '  . / .  /                                      |           \   /
    /  /  _/ /    +                                      /              \/
   '  (__/                                             /                  \
