thank you very much.  You did most of the work, so I won.
I'll look at the patch soon.

But two comments now, in a hurry:

I don't see any problem.  It should work.  I think that AC_CONFIG_COMMANDS_PRE
is the last opportunity to call AC_SUBST and AC_CONFIG_FOOS.

But it is not documented, yet.

This doesn't seem correct.  As far as Autoconf is concerned, AC_CONFIG_HEADERS
might be called just before AC_OUTPUT.
OTOH, it's a good custom to call it at the top.
Perhaps some package could test for AH_HEADER...

Are you willing to prepare another patch and do these two doc enhancements?

Have a nice weekend,
