Autoheader and AC_CONFIG_HEADERS with new lines

The first version of the statement works fine while the second does not.


A file "config.h\n.in" gets created. The documentation explicitly says
new lines
are ok in the list.

A second issue is that autoheader knows about the problem but does not
stop on error (return code 0). 

The following output is produced:

        Unsuccessful stat on filename containing newline at 
/usr/share/perl/5.10/File/Copy.pm line 229.

If new lines cannot be supported as claimed, it would help a lot if
autoheader stopped
on error. The configuration process typically spews out a lot of output
and the message goes unnoticed.

The problem was reported by someone else as well some time ago:

My current level of autoconf is 2.63 (automake 1.9.6) on Linux AMD64
