still failing getting bootstrapped from cvs

Since I'm using newer autoconf (2.52) I get errors when doing autoheader.
I can work around this, when I change acinclude.m4, commenting out the
definitions of AC_C_VOLATILE and AC_HEADER_TIOCGWINSZ.

Now the aclocal; autoheader; autoconf; automake commandline goes through
silently (hmm, you have to add _POSIX_SOURCE to acconfig.h!).

But when I run configure no I get another strange error (I think don't
like this m4 language thing).
./configure: line 12927: syntax error near unexpected token `;'
./configure: line 12927: `    ;;'

with the context:

12924:	rm -f conftest.$ac_objext conftest$ac_exeext conftest.$ac_ext
12925:    HTWAIS="HTWAIS.lo"
12926:    WWWWAIS="libwwwwais.la"
12927:    LWWWWAIS="-lwwwwais.la"
12928:    LIBWWWWAIS='${top_builddir}/Library/src/libwwwwais.la'
12929:    ;;
12930:  esac
12931:else
12932:  echo "$as_me:12932: result: no" >&5
12933:echo "${ECHO_T}no" >&6
12934:  HTWAIS=""
12935:  WWWWAIS=""
12936:  LWWWWAIS=""
12937:  LIBWWWWAIS=""
12938:
12939:fi;

Though I cannot find a ; token in 12927: I think the error refers to 12929:

It's not conventient to downgrade autoconf since I need it for other packages.
