I don't like this patch :(.  Running `autoconf' should be considered
as sort of deprecated (of course, since I am willing to remain alive,
I will not even try to deprecate it, nor mention the sole idea.  As a
matter of fact, you just had the illusion you read something, but
actually nothing's written), replaced by autom4te -l autoconf.

This patch kills this idiom :(

How much of a problem is it really to adjust ~/.autom4te.cfg?
