Yes, please enhance the documentation ! In fact, the documentation
starts with "In future..." but doesn't talk about what the macro does
at present. And yes, bailing out in configure's execution if the directory
isn't present, but then never touch the directory again, isn't contributing
to clarify anything either. :-)
