I can still hear the echo of your voice :)

Sorry about this.  Work, fun and vacations.  Everything that makes me
run away from Autoconf...

That's the fun part :)

Please, install the patch, it's fine with me.  Too bad for -i.  I'm
really frustrated: I meant to have all these tools follow the same set
of options.  We should probably move away from -i then.  I couldn't
find anything interesting in the GCS.  But that's for later.

Mark>   * process $AC_MACRO_PATH and @SITE_MACRO_DIR@ in autom4te instead of

I don't think this is the right way to do it: AC stands for Autoconf,
and it's wrong to have Autoconf directories read for Autotest etc.
Please, don't include this part.  We'll find another solution (such as
adding --include-envvar, or whatever, to autom4te, and have
autom4te.cfg pass it for -l Autoconf).
