Please show the configure.ac file with which you observe this.
It seems it's that which has a bug/typo.  Or did you want to report that?
If yes: then there is no bug in Autoconf, but in the package the configure.ac
file originates in (or maybe you only wanted to report a suboptimal error
message?  If yes then I agree, but also then this can be closed as wontfix,
as getting the shell to do decent error reporting is neigh impossible).

Hope that helps,

I'm closing this now as it is either a bug in the package he wants to compile or
something we can't fix anyway.
