I agree. Both because the cpp symbol name should be standardized, and also because cache variables are something of an implementation detail that should (preferably) not be used in

Uhm, yes. In my it is used like this:


AS_IF([test "$ax_cv_PTHREAD_PRIO_INHERIT" = "yes"],

I guess it makes sense to include that snippet directly into AX_PTHREAD.

I might be missing something here, but shouldn't there be an AC_DEFINE([HAVE_PTHREAD_PRIO_INHERIT]) or the like in there? All this check is doing is setting a cache variable.
