I don't know.  Let's first see why they had to do such hacks.  Maybe
the macro you're listing is a replacement of an AC_CHECK_FUNC or
whatever, where us, the Autoconf team, indeed worked a lot to fix the
many bug 2.13 has.  So maybe they simply don't need anything else but
a good C++ support in Autoconf.  2.50 shall be enough then, without
any public dispatching/casing macro.
