I agree that something with the functionality of AC_CHECK_FUNC_IN would
be more appropriate in autoconf proper as opposed to a third party
macro.  But I think such a macro should have the same semantics of
AC_CHECK_LIB, namely that it comes with a default action-if-true that
defines HAVE_LIBfoo and adds -lfoo to LIBS.
