That would be an idea.  What I currently do is to just call autoconf
in autogen.sh, then check via grep whether my diversion has made it
in.  If it it hasn't, I put out a warning, and call an ed-script that
places the change in the hard way.

That way, with a recent enough autoconf, using autoconf instead of
autogen.sh will not do any harm, while the stuff still works for
older autoconfs.

Not pretty, no, but I guess we have given up about a pretty solution
by now.
