According to what I recently read on the autoconf mailing list maybe
difficult but I think not impossible.
Right, not impossible. I know Akim and Alexandre quite well from my
work with GNU. They're reasonable folks and very experienced at this
stuff. I hope they'll respond well to a coherent explanation of the
problem and the various solutions we've thought of ...
I know that gcc and others use makefile
fragments to be inserted at configure time,
That's a very good point. I didn't know that. (I just tried to look at
the gcc setup to see what it does, but it defeated me.)
Is it true or not that ac_include is used for makefile fragments only?
I just grepped in TeX/texk/* in TeX Live, and it only shows up in
Makefile.in (and documentation). So unless there are well-hidden uses
lurking out there ...
