autoconf-2.62: `make check' falls foul of MSYS bug

Having successfully built autoconf-2.62 for use with MSYS, on 
MS-Windows, `make check' fails as follows:--

  $ make check
  /bin/sh ./testsuite
  rm: reading directory `tdir /': No such file or directory
  testsuite: error: invalid content: atlocal
  make[3]: *** [check-local] Error 1
  make[3]: Leaving directory \
  make[2]: *** [check-am] Error 2
  make[2]: Leaving directory \
  make[1]: *** [check-recursive] Error 1
  make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/keith/foobar/foo/autoconf-2.62'
  make: *** [check] Error 2

While it seems likely that this is a consequence of a bug in MSYS:

...it may be worked around by applying the attached patch, (against 
tests/atlocal.in, in released autoconf-2.61).

FWIW, after applying this, the testsuite runs for seven hours, on my 
1.7GHz Pentium-D Win2K box; after this protracted period, it completes 
successfully, with zero unexpected results.
