The patches posted there look sane to me, at a glance.  The semantic
change to use pkg-config is one the maintainers need to decide over,
of course.

Well, a first step would be to see that temp file; you can pass --debug
to autoupdate to not remove them.  But it's quite likely that we would
need some way to reproduce this error, and that can be surprisingly hard
at least sometimes: it might need the exact package tree you have, the
old autotools it was bootstrapped with, and the new ones you're using
now.  OTOH, sometimes it's a lot simpler too.

So, how about you show that input.m4 (gzip if large) and post exact tool
versions that were, and are to be, used.
