The autoconf manual says:

Use @code{AC_DEFINE} but have @command{configure} compute the literal
value of @code{datadir} and others.  Many people have wrapped macros to
automate this task; for an example, see the macro @code{AC_DEFINE_DIR} from
the @uref{http://@/, Autoconf Macro

It then adds:

This solution does not conform to the GNU Coding Standards.

What are we doing supporting something than does not conform to the
GCS? This problem has other solutions (there are two others listed in
the manual). Would anyone object if I obsoleted this macro in

(If so, I'll provide a patch to remove this mention from the autoconf
manual; if not, then I'll provide a patch to give the correct name of
the macro: it's now called AX_DEFINE_DIR.)
