Re: autoconf weirdness

Hello Brian,

I am trying to update configure in shellutils-2.0.11 with
the woody version of autoconf.

First I had to rename instances of AC_SHELL_IFELSE to AS_IF.

However, now I get this weird first few lines:

--- cut ---
#! /bin/sh
# Guess values for system-dependent variables and create Makefiles.
# Generated by GNU Autoconf 2.53.
# Copyright 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002

' ECHO_T='      ' ;;
  *c*,*  ) ECHO_N=-n ECHO_C= ECHO_T= ;;
  *)       ECHO_N= ECHO_C='\c' ECHO_T= ;;

I once got this error message when I defined a macro before the use of AC_INIT. autoconf2.13 didn't complain, but autoconf2.5x produced the piece of code shown above.
