autoconf can not do this for you. Neither the current ./Configure. You
have hard-coded this stuff into ./Configure and ./Configure will act

The same exact type of overriding and special test cases you can do with
autoconf too. In this respect there is no difference. I did not say that
autoconf will save you in cases like this. I said that it will simplify
other tests and lists of features for each platform.
