You are correct (I discovered ...)

Uncommenting the m4_pattern_allow calls works for me.  

I think it would be a good idea to do this:  

  1) The autoconf error messages >>do<< appear to be saying that 
     autoconf has failed.  This view is supported by autoconf setting a 
     non-zero rc.

  2) IMO, it is a bad idea to depend on correct output from a (possibly) 
     failed autoconf run. 

  3) It is easier to fix the error message than to document it :-)

That's debatable :-)
