Our of curiosity, does it break something?

(I'm still waiting for someone to confirm or negate this statement:

I believe this is no longer needed in CVS Automake (HEAD), since
Automake now uses `autoconf --trace', sees the AC_SUBST
performed by AC_CHECK_TOOL, and should therefore override its AR
definition with yours.
