Interesting patch for linc

Hi everyone,
	I needed this patch to get my linc to compile; it's a bit interesting
because it exposes a behavior change (bug?) in autoconf >= 2.50. It
seems that


will give you 'value', not 'new_value'. I can't figure out why, but I
figured I would give people a heads-up as this is a kind of odd thing
that might cause lots of head-scratching some time later.

Anyway, Michael, or someone else with authority, may I commit?
