A friend of mine had problems with AC_HEADER_STDC and it was
impossible, reading the logs, to understand what went wrong.
AC_TRY_RUN is not verbose enough.

Index: ChangeLog
from  Akim Demaille  <address@hidden>
        Let AC_TRY_RUN be more verbose

        * acgeneral.m4 (_AC_RUN_IFELSE): Instead of canceling the output
        of the test program, save it into the log.
        Save the exit status, and report it in the log when non zero.
        Just use `(./conftest)' instead of `(./conftest; exit)'.
