Follow-up Comment #2, sr #106319 (project findutils):

in the autotool world, you're supposed to use libtool to generate libraries
(even internal ones -- those are called convenience libraries)

at least that's my guess as to why there arent AR/RANLIB m4 macros already to
accomplish things

if i created a custom path and then created a custom wrapper/symlink in there
named "ar" to the real ar binary, then sure that'd "work".  but that sort of
defeats the purpose of autotools/package doing things for you ;)

the AC_CHECK_TOOL() macro is the recommended method for finding these sort of
utilities though ... if you check the autoconf manual, its example shows
pretty much the same thing
