I'm not sure: upstream did that patch independently of yours, and I
saw it looked about the same and blindly merged it.
I'm CCing this message to upstream to let it be addressed directly.
But I will close with a parenthetical grouse: isn't this exactly the
sort of tedious system-by-system manual non-future-proof groveling
that autotools is supposed to abolish? Could this be tested
automatically using existing autoconf macros?
