I have found what I think to be a bug in the debian autoconf package 

The problem that I have occurs when I use the AC_C_CONST macro.  I've
attached the code that both 2.13-23 and 2.13-25 generated when the
AC_C_CONST macro was defined in my  The following is a diff
between the two pieces of generated C code.

This syntax error causes gcc to fail, with

regexp which causes all the const(s) in the build to be redefined as
