Subject: AC_CANONICAL_SYSTEM overwrites $@

I've seen a flurry of Debian BTS emails around this bug, but none
of them have made it clear to me what I should do about it.

In the long term, I suspect that the Autoconf macros in the
apr-util package should be fixed, and that autoconf-doc should
document that $@ may be changed by some macros.  In the short
term, I'm willing to help out, if necessary, by putting some kind
of Debian-specific patch that saves and restores the positional
parameters (if indeed there's a way to do that) around

What would you prefer?
