It looks like `m4_if' works in recent autoconfs, but not autoconf 2.13.
`ifelse' seems to work in both, so I'll change it to that, but the
documentation for autoconf (2.57) looks like it's suggesting that maybe
only m4_if will work in the future...
                                                                                
[The goal being basically a comment syntax that (1) doesn't get propagated
to output files, and (2) doesn't contain any alpha-numeric characters (this
latter requirement being a bogosity of the way arch-tag: works), so I can't
use `dnl' :-(.]
