No known bug, just looks more consistent,
when the version check is always the first thing checked.

That's ok.

I don't see how this fixes an Autoconf bug, so I'm inclined to not install this until perhaps after the next release (since we're trying to stabilize).

Could you send this to the autoconf-patches mailing list please?

Old code uses a C++ style comment before checking _STDC_VERSION_, but the C89 and C11 tests
check the predefined macros first (_STDC_  / _STDC_VERSION_)

With Patch.
