This reminds me of the bug fix suggested by Philippe De Muyter in


Is there any reason why that bug fix wasn't installed?
(I'll CC: this to bug-autoconf to see.)

Can you please try the following shell script on the troublesome host?
You'll need to cut and paste, to get the exact set of tabs.  If the
first 'sed' fails, but the second one succeeds, it suggests that the
autoconf bug fix should be installed, and that it will fix your

   echo '#define x(y) z' | sed -n 's,^[         ]*#[    ]*define[       ][      
]*\(\([^        (][^    (]*\)([^)]*)\)[         
   echo xxxxx
   echo '#define x(y) z' | sed -n 's,^[         ]*#[    ]*define[       ][      
]*\([^  (][^    (]*\)\(([^)]*)\)[       

Here's what the output should look like for a host with a working 'sed':


but my theory is that you'll get an error message instead.
