This really isn't an Autoconf question. really is a GCC
thing, but for convenience it's also shipped with Automake, together
with automake/m4/multi.m4 which defines

which I think contains "the magic" you're looking for.  Questions about
it usually find an audience better prepared to answer at a GCC list, or
maybe Automake's.

Hope that helps.
