Yes, and AC_PROG_CC_STDC should refer to the best (typically, latest)
C standard.  That is, AC_PROG_CC_STDC should attempt to set the
compiler into C99 mode, and failing that should attempt to set it in
C89 mode.  So Roger, please make that part of the next revision for
your patch.

Also, Roger you'll need to get papers signed for your contribution
to Autoconf.  Have you already started the ball rolling on this?
If not, I can send you the initial forms.
