: On some systems, you can't rename an open file.
: Add `exec AS_MESSAGE_LOG_FD >& 2' before the `mv' and it should work.

Yes.  Do you know if configure has many exit points in AC_INIT (so a trap
should be set up) or if it's just the one after option parsing?

: Also, I have a slight preference for the name config.Tlog instead of
: conf-log.tmp.  But maybe it's just me.

No, I'm with you.  I'm just not used to think in those conventions so I
didn't think of that name.  I was never happy with the file name (which is
part of the reason I put it in a define).
