Thanks for raising this again, I had completely forgotten about it.

Here is a patch that goes Akim's way.  Since we cannot change the
meaning of Autoconf, people must adjust their ~/.autom4te.cfg.

2004-03-19  Alexandre Duret-Lutz  <address@hidden>

        * doc/autoconf.texi (autom4te Invocation): Language Autoconf
        inherits from language Autoconf-without-aclocal-m4.
        (Customizing autom4te): Adjust example; the cache must now be
        disabled for language Autoconf-without-aclocal-m4.
