This requires updating of Autoconf.  I'm checking the following in

More generally, it either also requires that we bump Automake's version
requirement on Autoconf, or we make the "autom4te preselections" test in
Autoconf less strict, so that it won't fail with Automake which has the
above.  Or move the test to the Automake test suite.

I'm a bit leery of bumping the AC_PREREQ in Automake of this, but in
this case, msvc support will likely still need other things in Autoconf
as well anyway ... haven't forgotten them, Peter, but I just didn't have
the time yet to think enough.


    Add autom4te trace for AM_PROG_AR.
