Since this is still open I suppose it's better if I attach this here.

It's one further patch that fixes underquoting issues, that appeared with the recent autoconf versions, as far as I can tell.

If we have to limit to US-ASCII, I hope you don't mind if I request this commit to be added as well, it fixes the spelling to be the US-ASCII compatible one at least, since Pettenò and Petteno are different surnames in Italian.

Hi Diego,

your macro has now been checked into the Git repository in 4777dc09a3b4b76cd43b787bf014336b2a77b1f4. Thank you very much for the submission! I performed a few minor edits. Most importantly, I edited the copyright line to avoid use of non-ASCII characters. I hope that those changes are fine with you.

Take care,

Since I got a bug of a broken libevent check in Gentoo ( ) and I was asked to look into writing a macro to check for libevent, I decided to make it generic enough (for another project of mine I could use it for libev instead).
