I've adapted the to the new version. is now 
called, so you should rename

Trouble was caused by nested macro calls:

AC_TRY_COMPILE([#define hypot /* */
#include <math.h>],[{}],[],AC_CHECK_FUNCS(hypot))

These have to be quoted

AC_TRY_COMPILE([#define hypot /* */
#include <math.h>],[{}],[],[AC_CHECK_FUNCS(hypot)])

as stated in the autoconf->Programming in M4->M4 Quotation->Quotation 
and Nested Macros
It took me 4 hours to get to that point. :-(

I hope the autoconf,automake versions are reguarded as stable and we can 
move to them on a nice sunny day...
