I just sent a message to bug-glibc, asked them what they will do
about it. Also there is a huge discussion of the autoconf
upgrade on the debian-devel list. The discussion mostly centers
about how to deal with packages that break with the new autoconf,
from the package maintainer's point of view. I suggest
that we take the developer's point of view and elect to fix
the problem upstream with updated aclocal.m4 and *.in files.
I'm currently reading autobook, to familiarize myself with the
autotools build chain. I've noticed a harsh lack of autoconf
gurus around, so I'm going to try becoming one myself.
