I followed that thread and know well about the restrictions
on autoconf's own macros.  I am now convinced that this applies
to all macros, not just those in Autoconf proper.  What I'd like
is a convenient test infrastructure (like autoconf's own) with
which to test non-Autoconf macros.

        * mkstemp.m4 (gl_FUNC_MKSTEMP): Remove temporary directory right
        away, rather than waiting for configure's at-exit trap code to do it.
        Suggestion from Stepan Kasal.
