Hmm.. I hadn't considered this case.

I think the simplest thing to do here is to assume these platforms have
new-ish versions of autotools. If the versions are too old that they
don't have those macros, then it's better to patch the build on just
those platforms specifically rather than ignoring a warning (which could
indicate that we are doing something very wrong with our macros).
