BTW, I just realized that with such a scheme, if some of the
/usr/share/alocal/*.m4 files contains an AC_PREREQ, it will
apply even to packages that do not use the macro.

Maybe we should also fight for AC_PREREQ to be used *inside*
macros.  Fortunately this seems less common.  I only have two
of these on my system: 
(plus many in Automake's own macros)
