Follow-up Comment #1, sr #108879 (project autoconf):

I'm reluctant to have autoconf exclude a namespace that it is not in charge of
itself.  After all, autoconf documents how to warn about the lack of
pkg-config, but does not exclude it itself (so I'm okay with expanding the
documentation in autoconf to also mention how to warn about lack of Autoconf

I'd rather see Autoconf Archives do a better job of explaining that any
configure.ac that wants to take advantage of an AX_ macro should also add the
appropriate m4_pattern_forbid(), or possibly even automate it whenever you use
an Archive macro.  Autoconf Archives could use gnulib as an example (it
installs its own pattern ignore as part of running gnulib-tool).
