would say what version of autoconf introduced them, or made an API
change (such as starting to support additional parameters) to them.

The most recent Autoconf release is quite a long time ago (2012, and it is 2018 already) so these concerns are a surprise to me.

Why is it so difficult to support a version which has been stable for 6 years already?
