Right. Now that the package 'ffcall' has been renamed to 'libffcall', the
second argument of AC_LIB_FROMPACKAGE should be [libffcall]. It results in a
configure option --with-libffcall-prefix, exactly as one would expect.

Not intentional, but harmless. Years ago I carefully added 'dnl' at the
end of some lines inside autoconf macros, to avoid the blank lines in the
output. But it made the macros less readable, and - worse - in some situations
it caused shell syntax errors in the generated configure files. So I now
don't care about a few blank lines in 'configure' any more.
