} I suppose I should have mentioned that <application-version> is a
} directory named after the application being autoconfed.  I also should
} have called it <package-version>.  So if I have package foo-1.0 then the
} cache directory would be one of
} /var/tmp/autom4te.cache/foo-1.0
} /tmp/autom4te.cache/foo-1.0
} ./autom4te.cache/foo-1.0
} ${AUTOM4TE_CACHE_PATH}/foo-1.0
I think this would assume "strict" accordance with the autoconf tools.
I.e., you can't be sure of the version number (they'd have to use the new
AC_INIT macro format and keep it updated). The user may be autoconfing
many different versions of their product and be using the old AC_INIT
