Sort of. AFAICT, the comment in its header was correct- it is the same as
comes with autoconf FOR SOME GIVEN VERSION. I don't know exactly which one.
But that is why it only worked with specific versions of autoconf. Over
time, the autoconf code changes (hopefully improves). But it is not always
cross compatible, thus our problems.
My little hack into the $srcdir value is a cheap way to try and surmount
that version dependence. But we give up some imporvements that might
otherwise be part of the autoconf that I make the snapshot from.
