  Well that seems to break libxml2
I tend to be a bit blunt about this, but I really don't
see why things like AC_TRY_COMPILE2 or AC_TRY_EVAL2 should suddenly fail.
And since I also don't understand where all the garbage output comes from
I'm not tempted to try to mess the whole thing more by trying to fix it.
