I don't understand why.  That's the canonical use of autoconf, and
it's clearly more reliable than using a cpp which may not exist.

Here's another example of lossage I've just found, from an attempt to
build on RedHat 8.0.  I've no idea what's going on.

creating lib-src/Makefile
creating src/Makefile
cd lib-src; make all  \
  CC='gcc' CFLAGS='-g -O2' CPPFLAGS='-D_BSD_SOURCE  ' \
  LDFLAGS='-L/usr/X11R6/lib' MAKE='make'
make[1]: Entering directory `/.automount/pxfs5/root/scr1/fx/emacs-rh/lib-src'
gcc -g -O2 -D_BSD_SOURCE   -L/usr/X11R6/lib  Makefile.c -lc  -o Makefile
Makefile.c:1:3: invalid preprocessing directive #Makefile


$ ls -l src/Ma*
-r--r--r--    1 fx       dlpxprog    20069 Nov  5 11:19 src/Makefile
-rw-r--r--    1 fx       dlpxprog    42351 Nov  5 11:19 src/Makefile.c
