No - just with that version.

Here's a patch as proposed by you to implement this.  

It has been bootstrapped on i686-linux-gnu and passed the testsuite
but I encountered lots of failures in the testsuite with "(test for
excess errors)" like:

FAIL: 17_intro/ (test for excess errors)
Excess errors:
cc1plus: warning: changing search order for system directory "/opt/gcc-3.1-devel/i686-pc-linux-gnu/include"
cc1plus: warning:   as it has already been specified as a system directory

The patch looks fine to me but I'm confused with those errors messages
that I didn't get without my patch.  Is my autoconf/automake version
broken (autoconf 2.13, automake 1.4)?
