You are right, of course. But it's more efforts to look for the "best" m4 around, so improvements, unless contributed by some devoted user (read my mind ;), are unlikely to be made soon. Especially because I see no existing Autoconf macro to address this issue. Maybe Autoconf itself has one (after all it is probably the most demanding M4 application).

This was discussed with a bug long time ago. It think may have been changed. So make sure that Autoconf is up-to-date.
