Doygen would also work and provide a convenient search interface.
However, this would mean going through every macro and commenting it in
a way that Doxygen understands :(

My first starting point is usually half a dozen greps
of /usr/share/autoconf/autoconf when I'm trying to see if a macro exists
that does what I need. If I find one, then its off to see if its
depreciated (or going to be).

I have a little free time (soon) to spare .. so if a plan emerges to
make the macros search-able I am very willing to help complete the
mundane tasks involved. This list has been very helpful and friendly, so
I'm happy to do so.
