After some more investigation it appears that the bug is triggered by code
specific to the XEmacs configure.ac.
Normally the variable ac_configure_args contains a leading space, but XEmacs,
for its own reasons, strips that space off resulting in the reported bug.
In that case, perhaps the ChangeLog should read:
* lib/autoconf/status.m4 (_AC_OUTPUT_CONFIG_STATUS): Prevent
'config.status --recheck' failure if ac_configure_args doesn't contain
a leading space.
