I forgot to mention, that I would like to keep the ac-macro
backward compatible, atleast for some time, sine most linux
distros still ship with autconf 2.13 as the default. Anyway,
the macro has come to be one of the most used by library
makers, so you're right, one might want to consider to add
it to the main autoconf. Well, in that case, it should be
done right and true, not just done and useful ;-) ... so it
should atleast be able to add to config.status 8-] --guido
