I found this in ls-mntd-fs.m4:

if test -z "$ac_list_mounted_fs"; then
  AC_MSG_ERROR([could not determine how to read list of mounted file systems])
  # FIXME -- no need to abort building the whole package
  # Can't build mountlist.c or anything that needs its functions

So in theory, I could edit it here, yes?
