Paul's commit yesterday
reminded me that Autoconf contains some macros that have more complete
and up-to-date counterparts in Gnulib.

Here are three proposed patches, all to the documentation section "Particular

- 0001 ensures that for every Autoconf macro that possibly does an AC_LIBOBJ
  invocation, we point to Gnulib. So that the user does not have to provide
  and maintain their own copy of malloc.c, obstack.c, etc.

- 0002 adds references to Gnulib also for other macros, where Gnulib has
  significant workarounds.

- 0003 updates the documentation also for macros for which no corresponding
  Gnulib module exists.
