Again, obsoleting a macro does not mean that existing code that relied on

that if you run 'autoconf -Wall' you will get a new warning, mentioning
that the macro is obsolete when porting to modern targets).

Since modern OS targets should all be compliant to the current Open Group specifications it seems that almost all of Autoconf related to OS-related porting must be obsolete! The original purpose of Autoconf is now rendered obsolete and Autoconf is now just an elaborate wrapper around pkg-config. ;-)
