I upgraded autoconf and libtool to 2.54 and 1.4.2 respectively
cause I needed some features and bug fixes for things I've been
writing. Unfortunately, I sorta noticed too late that autoconf 2.54 is
vastly different and _nearly_ compatible with autoconf 2.13, which seems
to be the last stable release before the 2.50 jump happened.

Now, when I run autocvs in the chicken sources I get this:
Linux black > ./autocvs
WARNING: Using auxiliary files such as `acconfig.h', `'
WARNING: and `', to define templates for `'
WARNING: is deprecated and discouraged.

WARNING: Using the third argument of `AC_DEFINE' and
WARNING: `AC_DEFINE_UNQUOTED' allows to define a template without

WARNING:             [Define if a function `main' is needed.])

WARNING: More sophisticated templates can also be produced, see the
WARNING: documentation.
autoheader: `' is unchanged

And then when I run configure, I get this:

Is it possible to update the chicken autoconf stuff so it can work with
autoconf 2.5 and 2.13?

I barely know autoconf so far(though I'm learning it slowly) so I don't
think I'm able to do this update of the sources without subtracting lots
of time from the other things I'm working on currently, and I sorta want
to see those other things working cause they are close to being done. :)
