Hmmm.  Thanks.  This means the Cygnus configure script and the
corresponding top level Makefile, which is used by gcc and friends,
will have to be changed.  Those files will have to do the comparisons
which autoconf used to do itself.

I'm not sure who will do that.  I unfortunately don't have time to
look into it now.
