Attached is a note from the autoconf group concerning the autoheader script
John Fortin reported on.  It basically says that autoheader was fixed for this
problem since autoconf-2.13 was released.  This means that it's fixed in CVS.

IIRC, this had already been fixed in autoheader after release 2.13.
Was the problem re-introduced?
