Libtool has some examples, you could peek there, as well as in the
Autoconf sources.


with '...' being a sensible definition of the AC_CHECK_HEADERS macro,
and announcing AC_HAVE_HEADERS as an old macro name that should expand
to the contents of the AC_CHECK_HEADERS macro (when autoconf is run),
and should replace invocations of AC_HAVE_HEADERS with invocations of
AC_CHECK_HEADERS (when autoupdate is run).

Feel free.  You can peek at autoconf/tests/*.at as well for examples.
