Absolutely not.  One of the main reasons I ever post
solutions on any forum is to get criticism.  I've
discovered that learning things about which I am
totally ignorant is much easier than unlearning
things that are wrong, and getting nitpicked when
providing a solution is the best way to discover
when I'm wrong.  So the nitpicking is appreciated.

Yes, I thought the AC_PROG_INSTALL was unnecessary, but a quick
perusal of the docs didn't show that immediately, so I left
it in.

Is there any reason to avoid LT_INIT and use AC_PROG_RANLIB
instead?  I thought that AC_PROG_RANLIB was considered
deprecated, so that LT_INIT would be preferred here.
