At first, I wanted to backport AC_PATH_PROGS_FEATURE_CHECK as I didn't
want to depend upon Autoconf 2.62, not because of GPLv3, but because it
was not widely adopted by vendors at that time, but I didn't have time
to do it.

Good point, personally I have nothing against the GPLv3, but perhaps
it's better to have that talk now rather than backporting...
