    Step 3: get a hook into autoconf-2.59 that allows to insert the ac_include
    For step 3 above I'd like to request an enhancement (on the autoconf
    discussion list) but before doing so I'd like to learn your reactions:

My reaction is (as usual): very nice!  

I seem to remember discussing it with djm and others back when I first
wrote the ac_include stuff, and they were not at all interested.
However, that was trying to get ac_include itself supported.  It was far
too fragile to be an official feature.

So we can hope that Akim, Alexandre, and crew will accept your much more
generic patch -- although I'll be surprised if there is not a lot of
comment and (perhaps) resistance.

All the best,
