Yes, I know.

The patch doesn't have the quality I prefer in Debian because it
introduces changes to autotools related files acinclude and configure
without build-depending on autotools. This kind of style introduced
other bugs into Debian in the past which I'm trying to prevent.

But I will apply the respective changes to configure.ac etc. and rerun
autotools, as soon as the problem gets RC for Debian. If the problem is
fixed upstream even earlier, no further action required here (except new
upstream version).

Thanks for considering.
