In other words, you're suggestiong that we should remove AS_TMPDIR and
rewrite lib/autoconf/status.m4 to put its temporaries in the working
directory rather than in /tmp?  That would be fine with me.

As far as I can see, autoconf.texi doesn't say where "configure" puts
temporary files, or what their naming conventions are.  Perhaps this
should be documented?  (I don't offhand know exactly what the naming
conventions are.)
