I'm going to push attached patch to libcurl's autobuilds in order to
verify that it doesn't break anything. We support autoconf way back to
version 2.57.

The intended purpose of this patch is to provide a 'traceable'
AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR definition only when using an autoconf version
that does not provide it, instead of what we were doing up to now of
providing and overriding AC_CONFIG_MACRO_DIR for all autoconf

Could you verify if it modifies or improves the situation also for you?

Remember you have to run 'buildconf' in order to make use of applied patch.
