    I would use actual #define's. That is what autofs does, in fact.

    The reason why I was thinking about doing in comments was so I could
    have a general purpose autoconf macro that would do this for all
    packages. I suppose the autoconf macro could take as an argument the
    prefix name for the #define, though.
