It would be great if the gc.m4 module could be taught not to fail when

compile helps but is so different as to be an actually different test.

More generally, I think it would be good if all Gnulib modules allowed
at least some way of invocation that allowed configure to continue even
if the tested resources are not present; an extra RUN-IF-FAIL argument
(possibly defaulting to AC_MSG_ERROR or so) could serve well, for
