The current autoconf generated files thats in cvs work. The problem is when 
autoconf is rerun durring the compile process it pulls in AC_TRY_COMPILER, 
AC_PROG_CC_GNU. When i googled for the problem I came across the fact 
that those macros were removed in the autoconf 2.5x branch. So I thought
the build system hadn't been updated to use the newer autoconf or the patch
was never put into CVS. 

This is the compete crash I get when the patch isn't applied:

make[2]: Entering directory `/root/src/gnumach/gnumach-build/i386/linux'
cd . && rm -f configure && autoconf > configure
-:1564: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_TRY_COMPILER
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
-:1587: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_PROG_CC_GNU
make[2]: *** [configure] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/src/gnumach/gnumach-build/i386/linux'
make[1]: *** [linux/linux.o] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/src/gnumach/gnumach-build/i386'
make: *** [i386/sysdep.o] Error 2

As is being discussed on bug-hurd currently. Why is autoconf being run durring 
build process. It doesn't look like autoconf is just seening the files out of 
sync but the is running it as part of the build process (from 

# Autoconf support
$(srcdir)/configure: $(srcdir)/ $(srcdir)/../../Drivers.macros
        cd $(srcdir) && rm -f configure && autoconf > configure

Could it be the fact that the macros are just defined in the aclocal.m4, which 
the patch
I mentioned just happened to remove? They don't appear to be referenced in any 
of the
other configuration files.
