autopoint failure with both configure.ac and configure.in

If I have both a configure.ac and configure.in in a source directory, and the configure.ac has AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION in it, but the configure.in doesn't, autopoint will fail while saying:
"autopoint: *** Missing version: please specify in configure.in through a line 'AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION(x.yy.zz)' the gettext version the package is using"
This is unexpected. The rest of the autotools say that configure.in is deprecated and that configure.ac is the new name for it. autopoint should be updated to stop checking for configure.in, and all references to configure.in in its error messages (and elsewhere) should be removed. Right now I am just working around it by deleting the configure.in files where both exist, which is probably a good idea anyways in the long run, but autopoint should still be smarter to help prevent user confusion. This is with autopoint 0.21, for reference. Thanks for all your work on gettext!
