Better solutions are certainly welcome.  I'm not proposing this for
inclusion in Autoconf, just offering some personal experience that might
have offered some insight into what's worked in practice in some cases.

I'd certainly welcome a more general solution.  Something that would help
with adding paths for third-party libraries would be excellent.
