if that is the problem, you can submit a patch which re-introduces these
macros.  It might not be elegant, but if it solves this problem then
there are no problems to leave them there, for systems using "configure"
they are just a no-op.

Providing such a patch helps more than complaining about portability of
GNU programs, I think.
