I am pretty concerned actually. But I don't see downgrading to an
earlier autoconf as something really helpful. There already was a huge
portability problem with the current code. Avoiding the autoconf update
for a while wouldn't have solved it. And in 5 years time the amount of
portability problems will be much larger.
Yes, it'd have been nice if this were done a month+ ago. But nobody
stepped up :(. Seems like the least bad choice :/
