Nope.  At least it is very suspicious.  Prove it's portable, then
we'll use it :)

I mean, feel free to insert in Autoconf's test suite some stuff you'd
like to be sure of.  For instance I am still not convinced that
negated chars classes are not portable, and I inserted a spy in the
test suite.  No one bug report has ever been sent about it.
