autoconf 1.11 for vms

thanks for writing autoconf for vms -- a remarkable feat considering the
limitations of dcl!

autoconf 1.11 (for vms) defines AC_SET_MAKE, which functions similarly
to the more modern AC_PROG_MAKE_SET (but not exactly).  i notice in the
(vms) expansion that there is something like:

        $(MAKE) -f some-makefile ...

which fails when MAKE has the value "mms" (or "mmk") because those
programs do not understand "-f".  i propose to support the equivalent:


by introducing something like "AC_PROG_MAKEF_SET", which would expand
to either

        $(MAKE) -f



as appropriate.  what do you think of this idea?

generally, could you point me to info on what kinds of maintenance is
going on for auto* tools under vms?  also, what are the required steps
to contribute patches to that effort?
