Now I don't know how to get the resulint x_CFLAGS variable into the
Makefile.  I tried assigning "address@hidden@" in, but
no soap.  In fact, until someone told me to use pkg-config, the only way
I knew to get the build to find non-standard header files was to add
them to the ./configure command line: './configure CPPFLAGS="-I..."'.
I guess the bottom line is that I don't know the proper way to set or
add to CPPFLAGS without using the './configure' command line.  I tried
reading the docs, but seem to be missing something.

Hmm, that might not be in the docs as such, it's just that you can
reassign most of @xxFLAGS@ seen in your while being in
the and before AC_OUTPUT. Just use shell-syntax for
that like
hmmm, I'm not sure whether the autoconf manual should carry a section
on usual constructs of shell programming. AFAIK, it would help simply
because shell programming is not the common skill among (younger)
developers anymore since there are other and more powerful scripting
languages available and also installed in a usual system.

The man page for pkg-config says: AUTOCONF MACROS

However, autoconf 2.57 doesn't seem to recognize the PKG_CHECK_MODULES

You must have pkg-config's pkg.m4 installed in a directory aclocal will
pick it up and run aclocal before running autoconf to get this working.

 In addition, the conventional name "" has been replaced
by "", suggesting that this document may be refering to an
earlier version of autoconf.  If so, can someone tell me how I can use
pkg-config with the latest version of autoconf?

How can this be accomplished?

Exactly as pkg-config's man page says - It works with 2.57.
