Why? It already has "rm -f cf77_test* conftest*" near the end. You mean
it's not guaranteed to work? By the way, the macros starting with _AC are
not required to clean up as long as their callers do.

I'm applying the patch as is. Two notes for the future:

1) It should be possible to test AC_REQUIRED macros, perhaps by adding a
flag to Many of them may forget to clean up.

2) Maybe Autoconf macros could use m4 to keep track of temporary files
they create, like AT_DATA in the testsuite. This way, "break" could be
replaced with AS_BREAK expanding to "rm -f TEMPFILES; break"
