Worst yet...

Nope.  No Autoconf macro require such as acconfig.h.

You should complain to the person who is responsible for this, and I
must say I don't know.  Maybe indeed the newest Gettext creates this
file, which is extremely unwelcome.  But in any case, note that these
are only warnings.

Gettextize should use the 3 args form of AC_DEFINE.  I don't know why
you'd have an acconfig.h.  IIRC, it's not even from 2.50, it's from 2.13.
