Those files are not under the GPL.  The autoconf distros very clearly state
that, when used with a configure generated by autoconf, those files can
be included and distributed under the SAME LICENSE AS THE REST OF THE
PACKAGE.  In other words, they are under the Apache license when included
in our package and we can change them as we see fit provided that the
changes are clearly delineated from the original content.  The changes
are placed in the public domain to make life easier for the autoconf
maintainers when they eventually pick them up.
