Not just update, but *merge*. Autoconf reads the cache, does lots of
processing, then writes the cache. The cache may have been updated
during the processing, and you don't want to toss those updates.
But it would be nice if autoconf managed this problem for us. It
would mean migrating to a new version of autoconf, of course.
