Did the Autoconf guys offer any advice on that matter?

Very cool, thank you! With those AU_ALIAS forwarders in place, there
seems to be no more reason to keep the obsolete macros around, is there?
Will "aclocal --install" recognize the aliased names? I'll probably have
to try that out. Anyway, if that works, then I think we delete the old
files right now. That would be nice!

BTW, I noticed that all the examples define the proper macro first and
the alias second, like this:


Our files do that the other way round. That's no problem, right?
Autoconf doesn't care about the order in which those macros are defined,
does it?

Take care,
