This problem is usually caused by a `dnl' in a quoted argument to

    dnl foo/Makefile

You can delete the dnl'ed lines, and that should fix things.  If your problem is
different, please post `' or `'.

CVS Autoconf will not report an error in this case, but `configure' will fail:

$ ./configure
./configure: line 1595: syntax error near unexpected token `;;'
./configure: line 1595: `echo "$as_me: WARNING: Cache variable $ac_var contains
a newline." >&2;} ;;'
