This ensures that a recent enough version of Autoconf is being used.

How does it ensure this, other by using versionized binary names?
(Which is not the way it had originally been intented, but is the only
practical way to do it unless you've got only applications that
require the very same version of the tools.)

I'd guess it's the most obvious way. Autoconf just reads AC_PREREQ(2.59)
and compares that number with itself. /usr/bin/autoconf is just a bash script.

If you install devhelp and the autotools manual, you can search all the
autoconf kewords easily.


Might even be an idea to make the avr-libc manual into a devhelp
book. Devhelp books are just xml files, and devhelp is an embbeded
mozilla browser.
