procps-3.2.8-22.20110302 (like on Fedora 15) contains /sbin/sysctl, which make line 34 of ax_count_cpus.m4 being stuck in an endless loop.

1. /sbin/sysctl -> /usr/sbin/sysctl
2. `/sbin/sysctl -a 2>/dev/null| grep -c hw.cpu` is evaluated before test is executed, which make the check "-x /usr/sbin/sysctl" useless.
