Nope.  Was about to install AC 2.60 myself and regenerate the build
files for other reasons.

Incidentally, with AC 2.60, if you replace the call to AC_PROG_CC with
one to AC_PROG_CC_STDC in confgiure.in, the default is to attempt to
invoke C99 mode in compilers when possible, which would hopefully fix
the SGI stdint.h problems folks were recently wrestling with.  It falls
back on the C89 mode when C99 doesn't appear to be available, which
would hopefully still fix your AIX problem.

Regards,

Derek
