In this case their configure would still be subject to latent
"missing </dev/null" bugs, which means all macro authors would
still have to carefully use </dev/null anyway.  IOW this just
makes the "missing </dev/null" bugs more sneaky by creating two
possible execution environments: one with stdin=/dev/null and
one with normal stdin.
