FWIW, I like the idea of doing this, esp. since I've been hitting
similar issues recently.   I am not an autoconf maintainer, but still
I guess it would be nice if this patch was accompanied by a
documentation update, and maybe one or several examples how to use it,
and how to quote names with special characters (spaces) so they don't
end up as options.  Not sure if `configure --help' should also show it.

Disclaimer: I have not tried your patch.
