The right way would be that the authors of the packages to which those
files belong would finally fix their macros!

For more information:
  info Autoconf "Autoconf Language"
                "Programming in M4"

More than you ever wanted to know..
(Short version: ignore those warnings coming from other packages' files,
or better complain to their authors; fix all warnings within your files).
