Yes that's correct.

The searchpath manipulation primitives of m4-2.0 are required to do away
with aclocal, which was (when m4-2.0 seemed much closer!) something that
I think Akim wanted in the next release of autoconf.

I don't know of any reason why we couldn't put out an alpha of autoconf
right now.  Then after a whole lot of platform testing, fixing any bugs
that fall out, a 2.60 release seems perfectly feasible.
