But the reason for that commit was that the previous block of ifdefs, added via AH_TOP, weren't taken into account when running other tests in configure, which was e807c8e91 added. But I changed it all to a preprocessor check in configure, and only then adding it via AC_DEFINE.

Yes it's a lot better. You might turn it into a general m4 function. Maybe AC_DEFINE could use it to allow overriding for specific builds.
