Yes, that helps.


Question 1: how come AC_DEFINE is undefined?
Answer 1: that is a bug in aclocal or so: a call of AC_DEFINE
 is involved in the call of AM_PATH_GPGME. Nothing is wrong with
 AC_DEFINE but AM_PATH_GPGME is undefined, and that also triggers
 the message about AC_DEFINE.

Question 2: why is AM_PATH_GPGME undefined?
Answer 2: It is not in the wget tree, and not in my /usr/share/aclocal*.

Installing libgpgme11-dev produces /usr/share/aclocal/gpgme.m4,
but we do not want to require that.

I think a solution is:

1. install libgpgme11-dev
2. cp /usr/share/aclocal/gpgme.m4 git/wget/m4
3. uninstall libgpgme11-dev
4. observe that ./bootstrap works

(I just did this: add gpgme.m4 to the m4 subdirectory,
and all seems to be fine.)
