I don't think it's necessary to combine these two features.

config.h is just buch of defines.  If you use autoheader, they are even
alphabetically sorted.

If you want to modify these defines somehow, you should probably build
a wrapper around it.  real_config.h would include config.h and you
would use the real_config.h exclusively.
Or you can use AH_BOTTOM or you can add a tail to config.h this way:

                [cat $srcdir/custom.h >> config.h])

(cited from gawk).

If you need AC_SUBST there, then real_config.h or custom.h could include
a file called second.h, declared as

I cannot imagine why you really need to use both types of processing with
one file.  But I haven't seen your project.

I don't know.
But I have another idea:
#undef \

Perhaps that is portable.
