If we assume that $2 is a literal `yes' or `no', i.e., the value can

Well, in that case Vincent should use $2 in the argument to
AS_HELP_STRING, not $wanted_value.  Sorry for not reading close enough.

ok. I will change the value of $2 to be "enabled" or "disabled",
instead of "yes" or "no".

There is no need for that.

You can choose different strings at m4 time (i.e., at autoconf run time)
if that's your point.  You just can't use shell code for this, because
it is run way later, at configure run time.

Use something like
       [yes], [enabled],
       [no], [disabled],
       [unknown default])

in the argument to AS_HELP_STRING.

It seems that the way I use that advice is not good :

[enable the ecore_]m4_defn([DOWN])[ module@<:@default=]m4_if([$2], [yes], [enabled], [no], [disabled], [unknown default])[@:>@])],
    if test "x${enableval}" = "xyes" ; then

The confgure help gives, for example:

  --enable-ecore-txt      enable the ecore_txt module[default=]
