Yes, I agree that AC_CHECK_TYPES_ONCE is a bit different than 
AC_CHECK_HEADERS_ONCE for what semantics they can expose.  However, I don't see 
any counterargument in your mail why I should not apply the patch, and yours 
was the only reply in 24 hours, so I'm assuming that everyone is okay with the 
overall idea (not to mention the faster ./configure runs).  As such, I pushed 
the patch.
