I'm starting to be convinced myself that it is the best one.

But then again, mulling over the issue a little longer, I've come to realize
that autoreconf takes care of re-executing aclocal after (and if) libtoolize
is run, which makes my previous concerns about the "wrong execution order"
mostly moot, and might give a valid use case for not having an error nor a
warning if the "primary" m4 macro dir doesn't exist.

So, what should we do in the end?

Thanks for the reference.

I think the 'unsupported' category is fine (if we finally decide to go down
the "give a warning" road).
