I've rejected 449245 as NOTABUG as these sources clearly violated what
the documentation explicitely mentioned as 'don't do that !'
Even autoconf-2.61 had this in its info docs:
# Pay attention that `#undef' is in the first column, and there is
#nothing after `HAVE_UNISTD_H', not even white space. You can then
#decode the configuration header using the preprocessor directives
#The use of old form templates, with `#define' instead of `#undef' is
#strongly discouraged. Similarly with old templates with comments on
#the same line as the `#undef'. Anyway, putting comments in
#preprocessor macros has never been a good idea.
autoconf-2.61 just happend to work even though unintended, autoconf-2.62
simply comments out the whole line without checking for inline comments.
