How would this help? The problem isn't that we can't define APR_
prefixed macros; just do AC_DEFINE(APR_HAVE_STDIO). And this is m4, so
I'm sure we can do something like AC_DEFINE([$1]_HAVE_STDIO) if we
want; AC_P_DEFINE should be unnecessary.

The problem (assuming that we think namespacing is the solution, which
I don't) is that the built-in autoconf macros, like AC_HEADER_STDC,
don't use a prefix. Either there has to be an AC_AUTOPREFIX, or every
single call to AC_DEFINE(blah) in the autoconf macros has to be
changed to AC_DEFINE([$5]_blah).
