What Peter suggests is telling autoconf to assume aclfromtext() does
not exist on the system which is a hack and I already have a hack I
could use.

I could check for __cygwin__ instead of that which would do the same thing.

Anyhow the discussion diverged a lot, and for now I'll be using my
simple hack of disabling HAVE_SUN_ACL manually.
