Isn't it time to remove %obsolete_macros and the related stuff from

It is Autoconf's problems. Autoconf has its own techinique to declare
macros obsolete. Autoconf provides autoupdate. Whether a macro is obsolete
depends on the version of Autoconf.

Why should Automake care and add more complexity? Unless the correct
functioning of Automake itself depends on new macros being used, why
annoy the user?

If I want those warnings I can just run "autoconf -W obsolete" and get a
bunch of them :-)
