This is certainly the wrong behavior.  I'm not so sure of how to improve on it,
besides refusing to generate any header for this.  In your example, a human can
easily guess that `config.h.in' is the header to be generated.  Other cases will
be unclear; which header should `autoheader' generate of these?


For now, you can work around the problem like this:

1) Change configure.ac to use `AC_CONFIG_HEADERS([autoconfig.h])'.
2) Move `config.h.post' to `config.h' and add `#include <autoconfig.h>' up top.

If you need defines substituted into the current content of config.h.post,
you'll need to shuffle things a bit more.
