I don't want to be picky, but it can't be 'newer' than the autoconf HEAD
version ! It's only modified by Apple based on a who-knows-which
autoconf version. To easen porting of GNU tools Apple will need to
submit it's autoconf patches to the autoconf project. They may or may
not do that, ask on the Darwin list.

IMHO it sufficiently easy to copy the Apple config.guess/config.sub
files on Darwin platforms over the GNU ones (but this could be noted in
the GNUstep installation manual). I'll do this all the time when
compiling on Darwin.
