Detecting 8.3 requirement

Is there any recommended way of testing for an 8.3-limited file
system? I have just put in a little work better to support DJGPP in
GNU Zile (precisely the sort of target system at which Zile aims, i.e.
resource-constrained). At the moment it still needs patching to work,
partly because of bugs in DJGPP and autotools, but also partly because
of the use of the ".zile" filename, which should be "_zile" on DOS. If
there's none, is there a good check which I could make into an
autoconf-archive macro?
