the answer was the following:
Sorry, I'm not going to fork autoconf for something like this,
and certainly not in an old version (2.13) when the new version
(2.52) is already in Debian.  If you want this behavior to be
standard then please talk to the upstream folks at 

thus, i'm writing this to ask if there's a chance that this behaviour is
