Problems with AC 2.66 AC_CHECK_SIZEOF

Subject: Problems with AC 2.66 AC_CHECK_SIZEOF

I think my issue is a dup of 
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-autoconf/2010-07/msg00009.html, but I 
figured I'd report it anyway on the off chance that it's not.

I reduced my problem to a trivial configure.ac script that mainly calls 
AC_CHECK_SIZEOF([void *]).  It fails in autoreconf -ivf.  

Shell output is worth a 1,000 words:

$ ls -l

drwxr-xr-x  5 jsquyres  staff  170 Jul 22 09:28 autom4te.cache/
-rw-r--r--  1 jsquyres  staff   70 Jul 22 09:24 configure.ac
$ ./ac266-install/bin/autoconf --version
