textutils-2.1 configure error

On my Linux system I said ./configure and it said
  checking for working long double with more range or precision \
  than double... no
which is wrong. Looking at configure I find the test

#include "confdefs.h"
#include <float.h>
          long double foo = 0.0;
main ()
static int test_array [1 - 2 * !(/* Using '|' rather than '||' catches a
GCC 2.95.2 x86 bug.  */
          | (DBL_MAX_EXP < LDBL_MAX_EXP) | (DBL_MANT_DIG <
test_array [0] = 0

  return 0;

It turns out that for gcc 2.95 or lower the compiler returns the error:
   storage size of `test_array' isn't constant
so this test is actually a test for gcc 3 and above despite what the
comment implies and what its description says.

Obviously a bug in the autoconf you used.
