You have not described any situation where AC_CHECK_DECL would fail. I 
know one case where AC_CHECK_DECL and the custom compile test will lead 
to different configure results. That is if the identifier is defined 
with a different prototype. But in this case, the compilation will fail 
either way (and the SDK is unarguably broken).
