Nope, I don't think this patch is right.  Do not forget that
AC_REQUIRE is invalid at the top level, and running autoupdate on an
invocation of the AU_DEFUN'd macro will leave it on the top level.

I do think the current behavior is the right one: it _works_, but
denunciates something which should be fixed.  Nevertheless, we can't
decide for the programmer which AC_PROG_LEX is to be removed.

My holding the release is mainly due to the fact that there is a
problem reported by Daniel Carroll, related to AC_PROG_CPP.  Until
this is absolutely fixed, I don't think it is sane to release

OK with this patch.
