Thanks for your detective work and the fix.  I installed your patch
into Autoconf CVS.

A dumb question that I hope has a quick answer: is the problem because
zsh is slow, or because Autoconf is doing something wrong?  (I don't
use Mac OS X so I can't easily tell directly....)

Absolutely.  If it's a nontrivial change, though, we'd need to have
you sign papers transferring copyright to the FSF.  If that's OK with
you please let me know and I can point you in the right direction.

Thanks again for the fix.
