This doesn’t do what it’s advertised as doing, and never has afaict.
It’s unclear how to make it do what it’s supposed to do, so we should
probably remove it.

This is a known issue that’s fixed in Emacs 26, however it depends on
how it’s been built.

Given that it keeps rearing its ugly head, I’m inclined to remove the
compile‐time check and just leave the run‐time check.
