Pre-existing, but AC_HELP_STRING is deprecated per autoconf
documentation; we should clean this up to use AS_HELP_STRING. Also
pre-existing - this is underquoted - we should be using
but those should be a separate cleanup over all instances of this pattern.
Meanwhile, in your patch, you added a rather long line.
A[CS]_HELP_STRING auto-line-wraps its second argument, so you could
write it like:
[location for UUCP style lock files for console PTYs
(use auto for default paths on some platforms)

You'd still have to re-indent, but maybe the shorter:
Console PTY locks:
would be nicer.

Aargh - I need to quit starting the review of this at the end of my
day... More tomorrow, I hope.
