just a beginner in trying to understand how libtool works
together with automake and autoconf (which is, if you want
my opinion - still a error prone, complex and difficult
task - but better than nothing). I started (after reading
the documentation) with the example"cdemo".The "configure"
script therein makes use of a M4 macro named AC_CHECK_LIBM.
Since the macro starts with the prefix "AC_", I assumed it
as part of the autoconf distribution - which is not true,
at least not in this special case (the macro is defined
inside acinclude.m4). This is confusing and bad practice.
I suggest to rename the macro to "ME_CHECK_LIBM" or "LOCAL_
CHECK_LIBM" to make the intention as clear as possible and
add some additional comment.
